Is it still possible to get this recording in shops?
Only ever released as an LP, as far as I know. Perhaps I can help. I’ll be in touch.
I bought this recording on tape years ago. It’s just about worn out by now …
The first tune here is "Drag her Across the Road". Throw it Across appears to be another title for The Humours of Toomagh, which is the final tune in this selection.
1st reel - Bobby Casey’s =
Link goes to wrong "Bobby Casey’s"
