Album Details for Full Polka Set. Ireland's Number One by Johnny Reidy

Basic album data
Artist NameJohnny Reidy
Album TitleFull Polka Set. Ireland's Number One
MusiciansJohnny Reidy (accordion)
Source and
other information
JRK Vol. 3, n.d. Audiocassette. No publication or date information at all is included anywhere in the packaging. The best date estimate I have is a message from Martina O'Neill Angland, fiddle player in Johnny's band, who asked Johnny about this in November 2014, and wrote to me on 19 November 2014: "Johnny said it was recorded in 1980/1981. He's not sure of the exact year." Approximate corroboration comes from correspondence with set-dancing organizer Bill Lynch. In an e-mail from him on 1 November 2014, he wrote, "I can only give a rough guess about the date, 1980s. I know we were dancing to it in London when I started classes there in 1993." The title of the album is also not clear. The front cover text is "Johnny Reidy. Full Polka Set. Ireland's Number One." The spine text is "John Reidy. Best of Irish Music." The cassette body label is "Ireland's No. 1. John Reidy. Vol. 3." The accompanists are not identified.
