I’m surprised this one wasn’t already listed.

It was released on the Transatlantic label (TRA 191) in 1969 and was the duo’s second album.

“Floss” has posted the original LP album, I think. The 24 tracks posted by “oldstrings” looks like a compilation of their first 2 recordings stuck together on the 1 CD. There are a lot of various permutations of Finbar & Eddie’s early recordings, and they are very good value - usually around the £2 mark, and you might get them for less on eBay.

Indeed, Kenny, I did post the original recording.
