1984 Recording.
One of my favourite undiscovered classics.

That makes 2 of us……….

So, someone else has this recording ! Box & banjo rarely sounded better than this.

Some of the worst album cover art ever… isn’t one of them wearing a Nike T-shirt?

So what ?

Has no effect on the music whatsoever.

Just a cheap slag there Kenny. Fortunately there is no direct relationship between cover art and quality of music otherwise this would be a pretty sloppy album. On the contrary, this is typical of any Paddy O,Brien collaboration: tight and full of knowledge and humour.

Coincidentally, I had the pleasure of meeting Paddy the other night as he passed through town with his band, Chulrua. Inspiring fiddle-box duets with Patrick Ourceau.
