Frank Harte: vocals
Alf Edwards: concertina

This new CD conveniently brings together the contents of Frank Harte's first two Lp recordings, originally recorded in two days in 1967 by Bill Leader and issued on the Topic label in 1967 and 1973. This is a must-have for fans of Ireland's premier ballad singer, and indeed those with any kind of interest in Irish song. As always, the record notes are encyclopedic in scope, and include full lyrics of the songs.
