I’m posting this out of curiousity, as it’s a recording I don’t have, and have never heard. It came up on eBay 2 weeks ago, and according to the listings, Joe Burke played accordion, and Paddy Carty played flute with them when they won the All-Ireland in 1959. I also don’t recognise quite a few of the tune titles, and wonder if they’re really obscure tunes, or just titles which have been made up for the recording. I reckoned it might be worth the price of a CD, so pushed the bidding up from £8 to £15, but was still outbid.
Has anybody heard it ? Can anyone shed any light on the tune titles ?

Line up was :
Michael Dooley, Paddy Doorley - fiddles
Tony Molloy, Paddy Carty - fiddles
Mick Darcy/Joe Burke - accordions
Anne-Marie Courtney - piano
Sean Curley - drums

It is a great historical album Kenny. Some great tunes on there. The tune titles are somewhat ambiguous as a number of the tunes are commonly known but with different names on the album.

If anyone would like the link to a copy of this album email me.

I dont know if it is ever going to be released again.
