This is a nice record with an odd history. I don’t have it in from of me, but my recollection is that the recordings were made some years (like, 15) ago, and only recently released. Just recently programmed the disc on radio. There is fine singing from Faulkner, and of course the Maire/Jackie duets of the period were terrific.

If coyotebanjo’s comment were true, then Dónal would have been about five years old at the time of the recording! 🙂
