And to start off, the sweetest fiddler of them all!

There were a pair of privately released LPs from the late 60s put together by the Michael Coleman Appreciation Society (really!) that were just amazingly revenant in the liner notes; they treated him like he was the Irish Paginnini. Kinda amusing.

Anyway. I'll be putting up the sides which weren't re-released on Shanachie or Viva Voce, or on the currently available Enduring Magic CD.

btw, windows media player (or whatever it's called) Says "input media is invalid" for all but Paddy Clancy's. Audacity, however, can import the others just fine and export MP3s that WPM will accept.

And harvest home has nastyish sound quality, presumably from a not so great source.

However, I'm thrilled ot have all of them. I've been wanting to hear colemen for a while. I had a reissue for a while way back when I was first starting to listen to a lot of such music, but I'm sure I'm hearing a lot more these days.

Another place to crosspost would be to

They've got a growing collection of 78's on there: ... 2278rpm%22

EDIT- oops- I didn't notice that this is where they were! That's the trouble of coming back to a thread you looked at earlier!

That's where I am putting these files...

Usually it's a reliable site but occasionally you'll have trouble accessing something that's just been added. The whole site was down the other day due to some internet SNAFU in San Francisco, too.

Harvest Home is a third generation dub of a very scratched up recording. Some of these dubs are courtesy of James Kelly, by the way. Bravo, James!
