The Long Black Veil

This is an album mostly of songs, but i thought it deserved being posted here because of the "Ferny Hill" track (very nice Matt Molloy 4-part reel, i’ll post the ABC later). Also, there is a great version of "Rocky Road To Dublin", with the Rolling Stones! There’s also "Changing Your Demeanor" and "Dunmore Lassies", which could be part of session repertory. In fact, several of the tracks have a kind of session ambiance.

If memory serves me right, this album was part of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the band. They invited all sorts of people with more or less Celtic connections to participate. Some of the results are incredibly good, especially (imho) the tracks with Mick Jagger, Mark Knopfler and Sin

Changing your demeanor

The instrumental part of ‘changing your demeanor’ is a hornpipe by the name ‘Cronin’s hornpipe’. I’ll post it as soon as I’ve learn’t ABC notation
