Classic 1972 recording from Tom Madden, Jim Younger and Joe Palmer. I seem to remember Kevin Burke helped out in a few places. Anyone in possession of a digital version, by chance??

Re: Banished Misfortune

Hi Dougal - this was one of the first "folk" albums I ever bought. It’s on the "Polydor" label, and is very rare. There are 4 copies for sale on eBay at the moment, priced from £75 [ cheapest ] to £195 [ ridiculous - it’s not that good ]. I sold my copy years ago, but may still have at least some if not all of the tracks saved to cassette tape.
It is a record I always liked, and I had been meaning to post it myself - don’t recall Kevin Burke being involved, but you may be right. Watch out for a PM - maybe I can help with your request. Kenny

Much appreciated Kenny.
As I recall, both Kevin Burke and Mick O’Connor added instrumentals with them back in the day - it is indeed possible neither of them went into the studio for that recording.
