other information
Philo CD PH 1026, 1997. This is a reissue of the LP issued apparently simultaneously as Philo 1026, 1975 and Transatlantic TRA 296, 1975, recorded live "at Passim, Cambridge, Mass., November 17, 18, 19 1974." The title of this album is disputable: "Live at Passim" appears only on the spine of the CD package. According to WorldCat library records, the original Philo LP carried the title "Live at Passims" [sic] whereas the Transatlantic LP did not, and instead just had the cover text "Boys of the Lough" "Recorded Live". Not indexed here: track 2 (The Day Dawn / Pit Hame Da Borrowed Claes / Da Fashion O'Da Delting Lasses / Da Peerie House Under Da Hill), 2nd and 3rd tunes on track 7 (The Balkan Hills / The Atholl and Breadalbane Gathering).
