When "Many's The Foolish Youth" was first released on vinyl in 1987, Fran Mc Phail, Gerry Cullen and Phil Callery were three well known traditional Irish singers but they had not yet named themselves The Voice Squad. They were singing songs which had long, if not ancient, histories. For example "The Bonny Irish Maid" was spread by ballad-sheet sellers all over Ireland and Britain in the last century. The "Kilmore Carol" was originally published in 1684. "The Holly She Bears A Berry" is an Easter carol which combines elements of paganism and older beliefs with Christianity. "When A Man's In Love" is a night-visiting song found all over Ireland and in the New World. These folk songs are sung by one of the most beautiful and memorable trio of voices you will ever hear.
