Lord Mayo

My copy of the LP looks like it was originally produced by Standfast Records and then re-released as Inchecronin INC7424. The sleeve has the copyright date as 1979 but the disc label says 1978.

The Le Cheile lineup on this LP were:

Raymond Roland - accordion, bodhran, concertina
John Roe - piano, guitar
Kevin Boyle - 6&12 string guitars, mandolin
Danny Meehan - fiddle
Liam Farrel - banjo
P.J. Crotty - concert flute, fife, whistle

I’ll have to hook my record player up to the PC to have a listen to this old LP again.

I wish I could’ve seen Raymond playing - the album photos show him smiling away as he’s playing, and his recorded music has great feel to it. Those were the days … !

Le Cheile is being re-released at Willie Week!!!

I’d love to buy their CDs, if you can find out any details.

The album was actually first released in 1975.

If anyone has an idea where I might be able to purchase a CD recording of this record or ‘Aris’ I would be most obliged. Dave
