"Disappointed! I have been awaiting this DVD since 2004 when it was initially supposed to be released. While the performances by Bing are very good, they are less than a handful. I was under the impression this was a Bing Crosby concert/show from 1965, but it is actually more of a showcase for various Irish acts of the day. Bing does about 4 songs - that's it! I wish the fact that Bing is more of an MC than performer was pointed out in the product description."

"Hosted by the legendary Bing Crosby, this scenic 1967 TV musical special filmed in Dublin, was presented as an affectionate tribute to Ireland. Crosby, who enjoyed tremendous success with his recordings of Irish melodies, offers heartfelt renditions of classics such as "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," "McNamara's Band," "The Rose Of Tralee" and others."

"When watching this DVD on a big screen projector, it appeared dark and Bing Crosby did not sing very much. It was made in Ireland. The whole show had more Irish singers than Bing.
I bought this to show Bing Crosby (and hear his singing) to residents in a
Retirement Home. I did not get what I thought I was getting-and that was- hearing Bing sing the songs on the DVD. He only sang a couple. There should have been more of him singing and the other performers could have sung with him. I was somewhat disappointed.
