In 101 Irish Records (You Must Hear Before You Die), Tony Clayton-Lea, one of Ireland's leading music writers, takes you on a nationwide tour of the very best of Irish music, from the stars of the arena to the acts you've probably never heard of (but will be forever grateful that you have) – from A House to U2, from Lisa Hannigan to David Holmes, from Luke Kelly to Villagers, from Marc Carroll to Van Morrison, from Thin Lizzy and The Pogues to Planxty and The Blades.

Mixed with revealing quotes and insights from the people who made the records, and a substantial feast of other information, this book is essential for the musical anorak and casual radio dial spinner alike. More than just a list, 101 Irish Records documents and highlights the great, the good, the forgotten, the lost and the hardly-ever-listened-to of Irish music over the past fifty years.
