Damn! So you’re why my attempt to add this information ended up with "Page not found!" Did you think I was through. 😀

Gael Linn CEFCD 190 - 2010

LP: "The Crooked Road" - 1973 = CD 1 - digitally remastered 2010
LP: "The Star Of Munster" - 1975 = CD 2 - digitally remastered 2010

amhrán / song ~ tracks 4, 8, 15 & 16

The information was originally all in one piece, but things went pear shaped when it went repeatedly to "Page not found"… 😛 I’ll chase up connections later, those I can find…


I’m trying to put together a fair mini review of this, not too coloured by the passing of time and changes. But, for starters, the accompanying booklet is a big disappointment, it is just the basics, the tracks and tunes, the musicians, and the Irish lyrics for the five songs ~ tracks 4, 8, 10, 15 & 16… Yes, I expected more, considering the history and the influence of this group of musicians and these two recordings. They deserved better consideration as these are important historic audio documents of developments in Irish music that cast a long and growing shadow…
