Source and
other information
Skylark Produtions SK 1003, 1985. Audiocassette. From the liner notes: "This recording is [. . .] a record of a 'Session' of Willy's friends. [. . .] from field recordings." Original recording dates are not provided, but clearly they predate Willy Clancy's death on 24 January 1973. Since Patrick Sky is credited with making the recordings, they also cannot predate the 1960s or so, given that Sky was born in 1943. Paddy O'Brien is implicitly credited (as "Tuneologist") for providing tune titles.
