I couldn't get my math to work out. 11 + 2 = 13, but I saw that I had 14 on my list, looked (and overlooked) for the problem until I saw that I had listed The Wexford Massacre twice.

In the United States, the 11 are found on
Irish Folk Favourites Vol. 3 [St. Clair] available from Amazon for $6.98, well worth it. You might want to check with Dick first.

Audio CD (February 27, 2001)
Original Release Date: February 13, 2001
Label: St. Clair Records
Catalog: #72222
ASIN: B00005AWLL

As Snuffy says, the other two are from some other source and are more frequently anthologized than the 11 from his LP.

Here's an inexpensive one: Best of Irish Folk, Vol. 1 [Passport] from Barnes & Noble, $5.98.

Release Date: Oct 1 1996
Total Running time: 33:57
Label: PASSPORT INT'L MUSIC
Catalog No.: 1641
UPC: 777966164120

I agree with Lighter completely. You get the feeling that they meant every single word they sang with absolute conviction. That counts for a lot.

Snuffy (and others who might know): Given the interest in their old recordings, is there any chance at all that they might record again? They really are not old at all. Just a bit of wishful thinking there, I guess.
