Recorded in the same sessions as "An Irish Life", and drawing on the same stellar line-up of musicians, "The Sad Pursuit" is a brilliant collection of songs on the general theme of dreamers and their fruitless pursuit of the unattainable. The would-be starlet in 1930s Hollywood.....the perpetual sucker whose big jackpot is always one hand away......the emigrant who longs to be back home............the washed-up musician who still imagines the roar of the crowd....their stories are set to memorable melodies and beautiful blues-inflected arrangements.
