I just got hold of this CD because a friend (who knows what he is talking about) recommended it.
The title comes from the Good Mixer pub in Camden Town, where these musicians used to play in session together in the 1980s. It was recorded in one afternoon (!) at John Carty’s house in 1989, and as you’d expect the recording has the atmosphere of a top class session. No studio over-production here. Just lovely tunes from start to finish.

The Swan’s Nest

The first jig on Track 14 sounds like it could be The Woodcock.

Re: The Good Mixer

Track 8 listed as Sean McGuire’s, Andy McGann’s, first jig in 14 listed as The Swan’s Nest.
