Nice list, but Earle's selection looks suspiciously US-heavy. What happened to Donal Murphy's great "Happy Hour," John Wynne's fabulous "Like the Wind," Claire Keville's gorgeous "The Daisy Field," Pat O'Connor and Eoghan O'Sullivan's lovely "Conversation at the Crosses," Dave "fiddle" Sheridan and Ciaran Somers' terrific "Faoi Bhlath," Harry Bradley and Michael Clarkson's mighty "The Pleasures of Hope," and the fantastic new RTE 2-CD set of Willie Clancy recordings, to name a few?
Perhaps we need to make that the top-20 list... Oh, and by the way, they haven't been Lps for a while now... ;-)
