Released in 1996 and recorded at Levon Helm Studios, Woodstock, NY, there was a long lay-off after this one until the recent ‘Maybe Tonight’. There are only 2 entirely instrumental tracks (Sally and Poor Fool) but many of the songs incorporate traditional tunes as indicated. The CD was unavailable for a while but I think it’s recently re-released or at least available in altered packaging and with - probably - reduced sleeve notes. Their Edinburgh Set of 20 August 2004 included only She’s On My Mind and Nancy (minus An Phis Fhliuch) from Long Roads, I think. Worth getting for The Sally Gardens Set and the rocking version of O’Farrell’s.
Nancy on Four Me & a Dog has nothing to do with the tune Nancy Clough’s
"The shady" - polka by Gerry O’Connor ?
The track list for the LONG ROADS album submitted by lottiemaus ( und vielen Dank, Schatzi !!) has something called ‘The Shady" with the 2nd track Planet ways.
Is "The Shady" that marvellous E mixolydian polka written by gerry O’Connor. I play the tune but i always wanted to know it’s name.
Thanks a squill
