Speaking of Mary Black - does anyone know if the first General Humbert
recording is available anywhere. I have the second on lp and it looks like
Shanachie has deleted it from its catalog. Too bad. It is very good. I am
glad to hear that Ms. Black is singing more traditional tunes, but she can
sing the telephone book as far as I am concerned. What a great voice!!!
As for "Kilkelly," the other musicians are Mick Moloney on vocals, guitar,
mandolin, tenor banjo and Robbie O'Connell on vocals and guitar. The first
recording I have of it is on Green Linnet SIF 1072 (lp#). I believe there is
a live version out, too.
Going across the channel, Brass Monkey, the band with Martin Carthy, has a
collective CD out I believe on Topic. I just ordered it and will let you know
how it is.
