Source and
other information
Ita Crehan MJC 1908, n.d. Released 2 July 2006 at the Willie Clancy Summer School. The original recording dates of the contents is very undetermined. The CD states only: "Most of the tracks on these CDs were recorded in Junior's home during the late 1950's and 1960's [. . .]." Further research by Barry Taylor, shared with me by e-mail on 7 January 2012, was able to narrow the "probable" date ranges of a few tracks, and those latest-possible dates are considered here. The facts added by Barry Taylor are: the tracks with Tony Crehan on concertina must predate Tony's death in 1995, disc 1 track 1 was probably recorded in the early 1970s, disc 1 track 6 probably in the 1970s, and disc 1 track 8 probably in the 1960s. Otherwise we can only safely conclude that none of the recordings were made after Junior Crehan died, which was on 3 August 1998. Not indexed here: tracks 5 and 10 on disc 2 (spoken word).
