A Kiss in the Morning Early

Mulligan - LUN 005 - 1976

This is the first solo album from Mick Hanly. All the songs are taken from Colm Ó Lochlainn’s second book ‘More Irish Street Ballads’, with the exception of Hanly’s own cracking little composition ‘The Reluctant Pirate’. Produced by Dónal Lunny and Mícheál Ó Domhnaill and featuring a number of musicians crucial to the 1970s Irish revival, including Paddy Glackin (fiddle), Triona Ni Dhomnaill (harpsichord), Rick Epping (concertina), Peter Brown (pipes), Matt Molloy (flute), and of course Dónal Lunny (bouzouki).

a truly great little song (the title track) by all accounts

i’ve learnt the words but haven’t attemped to sing it yet …
