Oh dear, I should have been able to figure out that the pitch would be raised myself, what a dope :lol: . But I didn't know what remastering entailed. All the CD's I wondered about have been remastered I am sure by experts, so I will figure they are as close to what really was played as possible. This has been bothering me for a long time so thanks for the very helpful info folks!

[quote="Kevin L. Rietmann"]Sean McGuire Interview from fiddle.com. His early sides are actually a bit restrained - or more traditional? compared to what came later, which I really enjoy as well, I should say. I've all his LPs and some amazing pub recordings from 66/67 too.]

Lovely stuff. I hadn't heard his early recordings before. I find his later recordings intersting! Innovative,clever, technical, flashy, showy, I have to say I much prefer this though! SMASHING! Most of those descriptions still apply apart from flashy and showy maybe?

Thanks for that Kevin. Ineresting reading.
I also saw that you had loaded up two more early McGuire fiddle recordings-Lovely stuff.
Also found some great Michael Coalman on the www.archive.org site. Fantastic! Also looks like there are a lot of other old style recording I want to listen to when I have time, or maybe I'll just keep playing these two!
What a great site.

Uhoh, I think you got hoodwinked. It wasn't sold to you from a suitcase by a guy on the street, was it? :wink:

Incidentally, I see the Sean McGuire tracks credit "unknown - piano".

Quote:
Boys of the Lough, Reavy's - Sean Maguire
Fiddle solo, Decca or London label, unknown - piano. This recording was reissued on an LP, the Irish Phonograph, which is now out of print, and I only have a dub of it, so can't supply discographical information. The second reel is the first commercial recording of a composition of Ed Reavy, famous Cavan/Philadelphia fiddler/composer. His title for it was the Hunter's House; innumerable recordings over the years have tunes simply titled "Reavy's," though...



It's worth speculating that the pianist could be his wife, Josephine Keegan, who accompanies him on another LP I own that also contains Reevey's Reel. Here's her blurb in the liner notes:

Quote:
Josephine Keegan (Mrs Sean McGuire), his piano accompanist, began her musical career at teh age of six. She studied piano, concert flute and won two Gold Medals for Irish Traditional Violin playing. Josephine first preformed on radio when she was fourteen. She also appears frequently on British and IRish TV and Radio. [Notes to Celtic LP SCX 55, Sean McGuire Volume One]

I Don't underconstumble. If it's not the real thing it's a blowing good copy? I have been hoodwinked and might be again but I don't think I was here.

I was just joking that an album by "Michael Coalman" might be like a watch by "Rolox". :)

Rolox? Sounds like a brand of cheese.

Some of these 78s used to belong to an old piper in San Francisco, Dan Sullivan; Dan gave them to his student Denis Brooks, who left them behind in Seattle when he moved to Cork. I dubbed the records myself, and wrote out the disco. information too, which I hadn't bothered to fish out. The piano-ist on the Magurie record is Sean O'Driscoll, London P18239. They list this M. Solomon as arranger; also inform us that Sean is "All Ireland Undefeated Champion Since 1949."
