So Far So Good Like, The Best Of
Released on 8th May 2009

It’s been a long road for John Spillane, but anyone who’s come along for the ride has taken him to their hearts. An Irishman, a Corkman, a gentleman. A National Treasure. John’s popularity goes from strength to strength, building a loyal audience throughout the country (check out www.johnspillane.ie for dates).

This, his best of, is a brilliant collection of firm favourites from previous albums, plus 2 NEW songs: Passage West, and Lovers Leap, as well as a beautiful reworking of Dance Of The Cherry Trees.
