John Cunningham
"Thoughts from Another World" 1981

Here's one solo album written in 1981 from Silly Wizard's founding member, John Cunningham (1957-2003) and released in limited copies from Shanachie records in 1981.
An album full of nostalgia and history. With enchanted tunes, celtic themes and dances of green joy.

Ripped by vinyl and encoded in 320Kbps for your ears.

'The music and song of the Celtic world has always been a part of my life. The first side of the album reflects the way I think of this world when I am thousands of miles away. The second side relates to my experience in the "New World", starting with the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland moving on to "The Crossing" of many thousands of Celts to America and finishing "Further Along the Line" with a tune written to show how these people influenced American music.'
John Cunningham

I would really like to listen to this - I once played with Johnny and he is really missed.

God bless you for re-posting! I'd written to ask for some Relativity a day or two before finding this on your site, but the file was deleted before I had a chance to check it out! Many thanks for the second chance! I'd forgotten about Silly Wizard, so thanks, too, for that jolt to the memory. -- smitty123
