The Wheels of the World – Classics of Irish Traditional Music – Shanachie 33001, released 1976 (LP)

he celebrated and influential musicians showcased here include fiddlers Michael Coleman (A2, B3), Packie Dolan (A4-B1), James Morrison (B6), and James Swift (A6); Uilleann pipers Patrick Touhey (A3, B4), Liam Walsh (A5), Tom Ennis (B2); and duets pairing fiddler Patrick Stack with piper Edward Mullaney (A1) and fiddler Michael J. Cashin with piper Tom Dyle (B5).

“This album portrays the true traditional dance of rural Ireland [notably reels and jigs]. Yet all of the musicians [except for Liam Walsh, who remained at home in Ireland] played in America’s large cities during the 1920’s and 1930’s. Confronted with a myriad of foreign customs and the attitude that culture should be secondary to material gain, the immigrant players asserted their identity in their music… They practiced with fervor and reached the highest standard of virtuosity… The players performed at weddings, in dance halls and in bars. Hundreds of traditional records were produced.”*

A great 1976 LP to listen to and download on this great blog:
