The more I play it, the more I respect these two master musicians.

Is this track listing from the LP, or a CD reissue? The tracks on my copy of the LP are in a different order from these, there’s also a medley of reels and a set of hornpipes that aren’t here. Also tracks 6/7 and 8/9 are medleys, not seperate tracks.

Tune Names

Track 4: There is second reel (not listed) called the Concert Reel.
Track 5: the first Hornpipe is a composition of Ed Reavy called Lad O’Beirne- not the Flowing Tide
Great recording, this from the two masters.

I’m not such a fan of Sean’s solo stuff (a bit too flashy for my taste), but I can’t get enough of this. Very tight playing from box and fiddle, my favourite combination, with a master accompanist. It just does not get any better.
