Sleeve Notes

The Tracks of Sweeney can be seen clearly emerging from Flann O'Brien land and making for O'Donoghue's Bar in Dublin. Sometimes there are three sets of tracks, sometimes two. From O'Donoghue's the tracks move briskly to the top of the Irish charts and then across to the Transatlantic offices in London.

The Tracks of Sweeney lead to the door of those who, applauding the breakdown of musical pigeon holes, appreciate the subtle blendings of styles … The distinctive tracks made by Johnny Moynihan and Terry Woods can make their way in at your ear and on to your mind.

Sweeney's Men are Terry Woods & Johnny Moynihan.
