Milestone at the Garden - Any Fans?

I’ve bought quite a few of these CDs over the years, made up of remastered 78s of late great Irish music. Frankly, most of them have a few good tracks, and the rest are often hard work for me.

But I just discovered this one on Rounder (been out for a mere 8 years) and I think I’m having some kind of religious experience. No make that an ecstatic experience. Actually, I can hardly speak about it, I’m so moved (and that’s not like me.) The music seems to just vibrate right through my bones. The energy… the tone…

Track 3

Track 3, identified as “Over the Lakes”, sounds like “Boyne Hunt” to me -- at least the first half of the track does.
