Typos

I fixed a few typos. I’ll comment on some of these tunes later.

Track 10

These 2 reels are more commonly known these days as "The Galway Rambler" and "The London Lasses". The names given are maybe older names. In the tradition of Michael Coleman’s recordings, the piano accompaniment is truly awful.

Quoted from the site:

"This is the second CD in a series of archive recordings from the Coleman Heritage Centre. In this selection, we have included, along with some well-known names from the Sligo tradition, a number of musicians who many listeners will be hearing for the first time.

This is an archive album so recording quality is reduced many tracks come from old 78’ records"

No slick studio dial twiddlin’ and fuffin’ about ~ both of the recordings in this series, Volumes 1 & 2, are raw, rough, human, down to earth and inspirational. 😉
