ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For more than thirty years Pat Cooksey has been singing and writing songs. He began in the Folk Clubs of England, later moving home to Ireland where he performed with many of the biggest names in Irish Folk music, The Dubliners, The Fureys, and Jim McCann, to name but a few.

Pat is the writer of several of Irelands most famous folk songs including THE SICK NOTE- WHY PADDYS NOT AT WORK TODAY, and THE REASON I LEFT MULLINGAR, which have been recorded by virtually every major Irish Folk artist worldwide.
The original versions of both these songs are featured on Pat's C.D. WORDS, recorded in Germany, where Pat now lives, and where he has become a popular concert performer.

The C.D. includes several other previously unreleased songs, and with just voice and guitar gives a good impression of Pat's singing style.

CONCERT REVIEWS.

This was no ordinary one man and guitar concert, the packed
hall was with Pat all the way, with his mighty voice, and
sparkling stage presence, Pat Cooksey has won a legion of
new fans in this region- FRANKENPOST, GERMANY.

Pat Cooksey is totally at home on stage, this loveable big
child switches easily from sad ballads, to up tempo songs,
and his communication with the audience is truly amazing-
NURNBERG NACHRICHTEN, GERMANY.

Pat Cooksey was back in his old stamping ground of the Ennis Singers Club last week and he sang as well as we
have ever heard him at any time, a great night- THE
VOICE, IRELAND.

Twenty Five years, and more than 1,500 acts, last Saturday

up to every word the press say about him, a great performer
and a nice guy- KREUTSWIRTS KELLER, HILTPOLTSTEIN,

Pat Cooksey, Words Album.
Finally got it, thanks C.D.Baby. Nearly every track was a suprise, great to have the originals of such great songs, nearly worn it out already.

Sean Ryan.

GREAT songwriter, this C.D. is a real collectors item.
Pat's songs have been covered by just about every Irish
artist around, to own a C.D. of the originals is something
else. Mary Anne is not one of Pat's better known songs but
one day it will be, a wonderful song.

Pat is a great live performer, the C.D. gives only a small idea of what he can do on stage, but still I play this C.D. every day, great songwriter.

Paul Jenkins

Solid material.
His specialty is songwriting. His guitar playing is pretty basic. He has a strong voice that could use a bit more variety in presentation. Overall, though, quite powerful. Grows on you with repeated listenings. "The Sick Note" is worth the price of admission alone.
