Liam O’Flynn, Dark and Slender Boy


My true opinion, culturally snobbish, judgemental, exclusive as it is, is that if you don’t respond to this music emotionally, then you must be dead; and actually, this is so heartfelt and true and expressive of the human condition, that even the DEAD would awake to listen to it.

I actually went looking for a copy of Rakish Paddy, by Finbar Furey, which I know from a Nonsuch Lp from the 70s or late 60s, but found this instead. Well it’ll do… it’ll do.
