babbler:
Heres the Bothy Bands first ever concert @ 320

Bill D:
Supposedly, this is the Bothy Band's first concert. It sounds like it, tight enough but quite there yet. Each cut was faded out during the applause so I edited out the gaps and spliced the applause. I hope it sounds better as the gaps were annoying. There's the odd "burp" and a few tunes are faded in/out which makes me think this is/was not an FM broadcast. It sounds too rough for that plus no announcer ever comes on. It has a little tape hiss and it is an old cassette so I give it an A- sound rating. I have not found anything, not even a mention, on the internet about ths recording.
My source states it is a SBD directly from Matt Molloy. I see no reason to disbelieve him.
If anyone has ANY info about this recording I'd love to hear it.
There is just the slightest touch of distortion now and then. The entire concert was recorded "hot". It in no way detracts from the enjoyment of this great show IMHO.

Paddy Glackin-fiddle
Triona Ni Dhomniall-harmonium/vocals
Michael Ni Dhomniall-guitar-vocals
Donal Lunny-bouzouki
Matt Molloy-flute
Paddy Keenan-pipes

Celtic Circle is superb, but the bitrate of your version of the Bothy album was higher than theirs so if you have anymore at a higher bitrate it would still be apprceiated, and the Celtic Circle could link to it.

When I went to download the Bothy Band recording I get an Access Denied message with a footnote saying the files were removed due to complaint. Any info on what's happening here?
