Man of Achievement

Sean recorded this on the `Top Spin `label in Castleblaney,Co .Monaghan in 1975 with Josie Keegan on piano.Track 5 is a piano solo from Josie.This album was re-released on the now defunct `Outlet `label on C.D. a couple of years ago.There is an amusing photo on the cover of Sean sitting on a huge boulder in a field,playing his fiddle.When I asked him what this was all about he told me that the high kings of Ireland used to sit on that boulder to be crowned! Sean`s humility was only surpassed by the sheer audacity of his porkies!

Sean and Josie were the ultimate professionals.

I produced the album, it was almost all one takes, the exception being The High Level: A string broke..

Re: Man Of Achievement

The Outlet CD issue has the same tracks but in a very different order, and with some very Outlet-ish misprints.
