A short summary from Wiki: (More Wiki info here: WIKI – THE IRISH ROVERS)
The Irish Rovers is a Canadian Irish folk group created in 1963 and named after the traditional song “The Irish Rover”. The group is best known for their recording of Shel Silverstein’s “The Unicorn” in 1967. The primary voices heard in the group’s early songs were Will Millar (tenor) and Jimmy Ferguson (baritone).All of the band members are from either the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland. Founding member George Millar and his cousin Ian are both from Ballymena, long-time group member Wilcil McDowell is from Larne, Sean O’Driscoll from Cork, with John Reynolds and percussionist Fred Graham both from Belfast rounding out the lineup.

I’m not an mp3 fanatic yet but might become one as MP3 album prices continue to feature sales – MP3s on sale at Amazon
