Notes

From Andy Irvine's Website:
"This was recorded for Tara in 1978 I think. Tara sold the rights to Carsten Linde's record company Wundertute in 1989 and they added the bonus track of "Bonny Woodhall" with Mick Hanly in 1977. Dónal Lunny produced it and I don't remember too much about it. It was recorded in Windmill Lane Studio, Dublin just before Planxty got back together for the "After the Break" long, long tour."
