Not recommended! 😛 This was one of at least half a dozen recordings purchased over this Covid-19 madness and is the only one going to a charity shop, if I don’t recycle it. I so don’t like this in any way that I’m not even giving it away. I can’t think of anyone in our circle of friends and family that would like it… I’ll say more on that later…maybe…possibly fill in those three gan ainms?… ‘Am I bothered?’

Yeah, one track just for a taster of my wrinkled nose when I listened - track 2 - the smarmiest and worst version of “Flatbush Waltz” I’ve ever sufferend my ears through… Yuck! I shouldn’t have been driving…

I feel guilty. I’ll try to find something positive to say about this - - - maybe… Even the included booklet is hard to stomach, like commercial floor sweep tea with six heaping spoonfuls of white sugar…

Tommy O’Sullivan’s songs - a lovely choice…

Niamh Parsons & Graham Dunne - kinda O.K.?
