Antiquarian Listening Post

What's been on my turntable of late. This excludes any new releases, of course.

CLANNAD - Dulaman LP (Shanachie) 1979
When I usually listen to Irish folk music, it is often of a more rollicking nature (Planxty, Cheiftains, Dubliners etc). This album however stands up pretty damn good and serves as a reminder of the good old days before they achieved elevated commercial success in the eighties. Beautiful melodic vocals and top notch tunes steeped in history, melancholy and joy.
