Where can I find a copy of Martin Byrnes - Masters of Irish Music?

I believe it was recorded in London with Reg Hall? Discontinued now I think.

Can’t find it on any of the reputable online sites, Custy’s music haven’t got it anymore either.

I’ve been trying to hunt this one down for a long time myself. It comes up on eBay every once in a while, usually as an lp, and always expensive, particularly if you need to figure in the cost of a turn table. Good luck, I really love his playing on Paddy in the Smoke.

Re: Where can I find a copy of Martin Byrnes - Masters of Irish Music?

good luck Donals, I had this one myself years ago but like most of vinyl collection scattered who
knows where - if I remember rightly it had Paddy Fahey’s [Gm] paired with Cliffs of Moher and for years
people would play them in that order

There is a copy of the LP record [ no sleeve ] for sale on eBay at the moment - £20 or you can make an offer. I may be able to help here.

There are at least two of the tracks from this LP on YouTube.

Hi. If you refer to Martin Beirne & The Irish Blackbirds Band, try Proper Records Ltd….info&proper.UK.com…note the spelling…a CD box set called Farewell To Ireland has a track of Martin Beirne. He is a first cousin of my mother. Best of luck in your search.

Re: Where can I find a copy of Martin Byrnes - Masters of Irish Music?

You can find a copy of it on my wall! Framed alongside Paddy in the Smoke (original) and Kathleen Collins. (Moved house and digitised the vinyls).
I haven’t got round to editing tracks on any of them, however I’m happy to post Side A and side B as two tracks for members - so long as I’m not breaking any copyright or commercial law!!
Yes it was Reg Hall on the piano, met him last year - hadn’t seen him since the 1970s in the great pub sessions in London. Still a lovely and approachable man.
I’m not too techy, if someone can suggest the best/easiest forum to load it I’ll post back with a link when it’s done. (I have Dropbox…..).

Beware the curse of the Bulmer!

Didn’t know he’d kicked the bucket. So I’m going to get a C&D from a dead guy? Over an LP that’s been out of print for 40 years?

Re: Where can I find a copy of Martin Byrnes - Masters of Irish Music?

>a dead guy?

Bulmer is, but Celtic Music is not.
