I have to say Troubadour is a fine piece of work. Both mediums (CD and DVD) work.
The album is a well paced mix of folk, blues and self-penned songs. Your performances are really excellent (as are those from the backing musicians). You are confident in every way and overall you present yourself as a mature musician who has paid his dues and has nothing to prove here except deliver what you do best... perform your wide range of music with great presence, great style and with great taste.
I do now believe that your version of 'If I Were a Carpenter' is the DEFINITIVE version...and I've heard a few. In my book it's a stunning performance and arrangement (worthy of a single release I would suggest).
Other highlights...Bye Bye Johnny/ I Wonder/ Alberta...and Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore are all gems...and The Peace Within ROCKS!! Shades of Elvis and Scotty's Sun Records period. Love it!!
So take a bow Barry.... you've produced an excellent double collection that should find an audience and gain you new fans. You've come a long way since your Dublin days...and have earned your spurs along the road. Long may your creative juices flow!!
