1997 release. Subtitled: Classic Recordings From The 1920's & 30's. "A collection of all-time great performances of Irish traditional music, including selections by such legendary artists as Michael Coleman, James Morrison, Patrick Touhey, Mullaney and Stack, Flannagan Brothers, Packie Dolan, and many, many more. These recordings were made primarily in the 1920s when the pure power of this wonderful tradition was at its peak, and were all made in America, to which a great many of the master Irish musicians had immigrated. Many of these very recordings played a huge role in establishing the basic repertoire of tunes played by Irish musicians for the rest of the 20th century." "Chronicles some of the seminal performers of the first generation of Irish-Americans to record. Among the fiddlers, two stand out in particular - Michael Coleman for the depth and subtlety of his interpretations and James Morrison for his brilliants technique. And Patrick J. Touhey's uillean pipes are a revelation." -- Newark Star Ledger
