The King of the Pipers

Tis is the first LP of uilleann pipe music ever, published as Claddagh CC1, 1959
It’s one of the great classics now and should be known at least by all pipers!

Looks like the tracks are reversed from the album sequence - it’s beginning with side 2 of the LP.

Side 2 is played on C pipes, by the way - side 1 on D. It’s a way of illustrating the different qualities of the two sets of pipes, like recording half of an album on viola, half on violin, or the like.
