Hi Paul, sorry I missed you too, again. I'm at the store on Tuesdays and
Please, please, feel free to ask when you have doubts about whether CDs are
new material or merely reissues. I could have told you what was what in both
cases. I don't always have the answer, but I have it pretty often. Bill
Martin is the new record guy at HMT, he is very knowledgeable but, unlike
Tony Z. who preceded him and could have informed you correctly about these
two CDs as well, Irish music is not Bill's strongest area.
This is not just for Paul, which is why I post it to the list. I don't work
at HMT for the money, believe me. I do because it allows me to combine work
with my passion for Irish music, and particularly good traditional music
which I am always happy to report on. So please, in cases like this, use me.
This is my home address, so I cannot take orders, nor can I tell you exactly
what's in stock, but you can always use HMT's 800 number or e-mail
(800-540-3794, [log in to unmask]) to ask those questions.
