  • Description

    The fame of the legendary Russell brothers - Mick, Pakie and Gus - brought legions of music enthusiasts to Doolin, Co. Clare throughout the '60s and '70s.
    The brothers had learned much from iconic Clare musicians such as Johnny Doran, Willie Clancy and concertina players Martin Kiloughery and Paddy Murphy, and the trio were finally recorded in 1974 by John Tams and Neil Wayne for a classic Topic Records LP, now released here on CD as part of the Clare set of archive recordings. With many extra tracks.
