A superb 2-CD collection of mostly never before released recordings by the famous Sligo fiddle player who composed "The Mountain Road," and some others--including a rare 78 recording of Tom Gannon, the son of Jamesy Gannon, who taught Gorman, Coleman, and many others around South Sligo. Gorman may not be the most technically spectacular player, but he is the real thing, a link to the old music from the Sligo tradition. Reg Hall's impressive record notes (55-page booklet) are worth the price of the CD.
