Diddly Diddly dee

Sorry I haven't got much time to write anything about this album, but just believe me - it's quite simply one of the best trad/folk/irish albums ever - just astonishing from beginning to end.

Although it was released on CD a few years ago I understand that neither artist got any royalties from it and so they stopped the distribution. I'm pretty certain it can't be bought from any legitimate source that would benefit any of the people involved, so here we go.

If you enjoy this, please go and buy some of the CDs that *are* available by Andy or Paul.

Andy Irvine & Paul Brady - Andy Irvine & Paul Brady

Post script: apparently this album *is* available, from the Mulligan Web site in Ireland - so no download, sorry. Link below goes to the Mulligan site instead.

Buy the Andy Irvine Paul Brady album

Yes indeed. I got this on CD in the early '90s, and it is indeed one of the best of it's kind that I've ever heard.

I agree with the previous comment. This is one of the most beautiful folk albums ever released.

Si, así es. Es uno de los bellos albumes que he escuchado y agregaría un par de cosas más: Andy y Paul hicieron una excelente dupla en este LP, ambos mostraron su versatilidad tanto en los instrumentos que tocaron como en sus voces. Es un hecho que esta versión de "Arthur McBride" cantada por Paul (siendo más simple), es muy superior a la versión de Planxty (cantada por Andy Irvine), pero quiero dejar en claro una cosa, Planxty es y será el mejor grupo de folk irlandés, de todos los tiempos, sin discusión!
Es mi humilde opinión, desde este remoto lugar de Sudamérica.
Witchseason, muy buen gusto en los discos posteados. Te pediría si fuera posible que agregaras "Planxty Live 2004"
