What better time to start an Album of The Week series than on Week 52 of the year! Better late than never though 🙂

Here’s this weeks offering from John Regan and his fabulous show – A Song for Everyone – Thursday Morning, 9am – 12pm.

It’s from the ‘Belfast Cowboy’ as John like to call him, Van ‘The Man’ MorrisAn! and it’s his 1988 album that he co-recorded with The Chieftains ‘Irish Heartbeat

The album received positive reviews from most critics, one of whom called it

Some of the most haunting, rousing, downright friendly music of the year!

It was Van’s eighteenth studio album and was recorded at Windmill lane Studios in Dublin and reached No 18 in the UK Album charts.

Thanks John for the album and we hope you all enjoy the melodic tones of Van The Man.
