Surprised nobody else has mentioned this. ITMA have acquired four acetate sides of Michael Coleman recorded in February 1942 at Lad O'Beirne's home.

The recordings were previewed on the Rolling Wave on RTE Radio 1 on Feb 14th and are now on the ITMA website. The playing is astonishing. There are also recordings of Lad himself and Martin Wynne on the Rolling Wave programme and these and more will be made available soon through ITMA.

Liam O'Connor and Joe Burke gave a full background to these recordings which have also been supported by the O'Beirne family in the USA.

Well worth checking out.

Cheers,
Ken

The whole story is on ITMA's site, including the recordings, and the anouncement has been there for a while. It's so public it seems sometimes superfluous to post that sort of thing here, note there's no mention here either of the Aggie Whyte recordings project that is utterly wondeful to hear.

The recordings show him in good enough form and that's good to hear. On his final recordings, the broadcast discs of 1944, he sounded frail and in decline.

It's always nice to hear this sort of stuff when it turns up . A lot of Lad O'Beirne's axcetate recordings have been in circulation for years though.

It was great to see/hear those presented in their context and as cleaned up as they can be

A very interesting article. Read it last night around 11.30 pm Swedish time, then took a look at Facebook before turning in and saw a post from Catherine McEvoy that Joe Burke had passed away. A bit of a shock as Joe was very involved regarding the "new" Coleman acetates
