Escaped commieny made me cry, my Grandpa was blinded by the mines and Uncle Mike crushed in the Wilkes Barre coal mines, Mollie McQuires were formed. today unions are corrupt but back then, they were for the workers.
I like "Lies" and "The Field Behind The Plow". A little different than the 'typical' Irish songs.
Thank's for the recommendation.
