Source and
other information
Outlet Music PTI CD 1027, n.d.

According to <http://www.irishmusicreview.com/discoutlet.htm>, this reissue altered the title of the (equally undated) original Outlet LP SOLP 1027, which was titled Session with Four Accordion Champions. According to my own research, the Finbarr Dwyer tracks are all taken from the LP Finbarr Dwyer with Teresa McMahon, Irish Traditional Accordionist, Outlet OLP 1004, 1970, recorded in Belfast; the Kevin Loughlin tracks are all taken from The Pride of Fermanagh Outlet SOLP 1009, 1971; the John Whelan tracks are all taken from Pride of Wexford Outlet SOLP 1024, est. date 1975; the Joe Burke tracks are all taken from Outlet SOLP 1015, 1973.

The only clue I have about when this CD was released was that the price tag on my CD package is in Irish pounds, which meant it was sold at some point before 2002. A Lithuanian library catalog attempts to date this album to 1966, which is of course impossible since the source material was recorded in the 1970s.

This anthology has since been re-released under the title "Pure Irish Traditional Accordion," oddly only naming Finbarr Dwyer as the artist on the cover. It is also worth noting that the entire contents of this anthology are duplicated in the 2-volume Outlet anthology Festival of Traditional Irish Music.
