2000 release on Black Rose Records BRRCD003. Beautiful stuff. When I have a chance I’ll reprint in full the story from the sleeve notes about O’Carolan and David Murphy coming to blows …
Lovely CD from a very tight trio. Very hypnotic from start to finish.
I love this album - hypnotic is certainly the word! Gorgeous piping and deep harmony singing. One of the very best.
I don’t have this album but I just watched an episode of "Banish Misfortune" where Cran performed a set of 3 tunes which I think was the same set as track 2. My transcription of the 3rd tune is:
T: Clancy’s Secret (?)
eaa e2a|eaa edB|eaa e2g|edB dBG|
eaa e2g|eaa edB|GBd gag|edB dBd:|

I can not find any information about this tune on the Internet.
The Ace and Deuce
I would really like o get my fingers around this take on "The Ace and Deuce of Pipering" (track 12) - a different version than the usual one!
