The Breeze From Erin

The Topic label again, sub-titled "Irish Folk Music on Wind Instruments", although they’ve maybe stretched that definition a bit by including the accordion. Recorded in 1967.
Musicians are as follows:

Willie Clancy - pipes: Tracks 1,13.
whistle : Track 7.
Festy Conlan - whistle: Tracks 2,3,8,10,11.
Eddie Corocoran - whistle: Tracks 5,12.
Tim Lyons - accordion: Tracks 3,8.
Tony McMahon - accordion: Track 6.
Seamus Tansey - flute: Tracks 4,9.
whistle: Track 5.
tambourine[sic]: Track 12.
Tansey is accompanied by Reg Hall on piano on Tracks 4 and 9.
Some of the tracks are duets which is why some of the numbers are duplicated.

Eddie Corcoran’s track "Bonnie K / Jenny’s Chickens" still stands out as superior whistle playing.

iTunes…..

This whole album is now available on iTunes for a very reasonable £5.99. Don’t know why that doesn’t show up "linked" to the top right of the page like other recordings available on iTunes.
