AllMusic Review by

Playlist: The Very Best of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem collects 14 songs from the iconic Irish folk legends, including the pub standards "Jug of Punch," "Irish Rover," "Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye," and "The Rising Moon." As far as career overviews go, Playlist pales in comparison to better-stocked comps like Irish Gold: The Best of the Clancy Brothers, Best of the Vanguard Years, and the classic 1973 Greatest Hits album, but you really can’t go wrong with a single song here, making it a great sampler for both newbies and pint-swinging hobbyists just looking to provide a little authentic ambience for the bars in their basements.
