Notes

According Andy Irvine's website: "In August, Planxty played for a week at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin. We were a six piece band now, having added Bill Whelan on Keyboards and Nollaig Casey on fiddle. Nicky was still doing the sound and he recorded each evening's performance which was to have ramifications a little later. …Pirate double cassette 'Planxty—Live at the Olympia' stopped by injunction, but quite a lot of copies were made and sold in UK."

It's unfortunate this was never (legally) released—it's really good.
