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.

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.

Very dubious legality, but someone has posted this album on "Youtube" :
