    Patrick Street: Ged Foley (vocals, guitar); Andy Irvine (vocals, mandolin, bouzouki, harmonica); Kevin Burke (fiddle); Jackie Daly (accordion).

    Recorded at Peach Fork Studios, Pomeroy, Ohio.
    As always, the musicianship between the four members of Patrick Street is impeccable, the songs are well-recorded, and the occasional contemporary songs fit in nicely with the central traditional material. Overall, Street Life is a nice extension to the Patrick Street catalog, but necessary only to collectors, as the album breaks little new ground for the band. Guest Cal Scott provides a nice surprise with his alto horn and coronet contributions on three of the ten tracks, especially on the lovely "Green Grows the Laurel"; however, the listener looking for a Patrick Street record which will guarantee repeated listening would be better off with their excellent 1989 effort, 3 Irish Times 3. ~ Gregory McIntosh
