The original recordings were made between August and December on a field trip that song collectors Diane Hamilton, Liam Clancy, and Catherine Wright made to Ireland in 1955. Although they are technically field recordings, the sound on these tracks (most of which were recorded at Mrs. Sarah Makem's home in Keady) is clear and spacious sounding. Highlights include the great Paddy Tunneysinging "The Lark in the Morning," an early recording of fiddler Padraig O'Keefe ("Jig"), Sarah Makem's spell-binding "In the Month of January," and the high, sweet tenor of Thomas Baynes singing "Barbara Ellen." Liam Clancy first met Tommy Makem(Sarah Makem's son) at these sessions, and they ultimately formed the Clancy Brothers, an extremely successful Irish traditional singing group. ~ Steve Leggett, All Music Guide
