Notes

This CD contains previously unreleased recordings from the RTÉ Archives, published in conjunction with Liam Mac Con Iomaire's biography of the same title, published by Cló Iar-Chonnachta.

The CD, sponsored by RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta and edited for this publication by Peigí Ní Thuathail, is a compilation of conversation and singing, including the two religious songs that Joe Heaney made famous, 'Oíche Nollag' and 'Caoineadh na dTrí Muire', and the stunning 'Eileanór na Rún' with 'Seachrán Chearbhaill', both attributed to the seventeenth-century poet Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh. Three of the tracks were recorded by Padraig Ó Raghallaigh in 1957; the rest by Proinsias Mac Aonghusa in the 1970s.

It opens with Séamus Ennis' piping, and his spoken introduction to 'Amhrán Rinn Mhaoile', often known by its opening words, 'Scríobhfainn agus léifinn leabhar Gaeilge'. On a later track, Liam Clancy follows Joe's rendition of Cathal Buí Mac Giolla Ghunna's 'An Buinnneán Buí' with Thomas McDonagh's translation, 'The Yellow Bittern', recalling the intense second life these songs had in New York in the 1960s.
