I just picked up the CD of Mise Eire / Saoirse? and wonder if any WGers saw it when it first came out in 1960 or have seen the CD more recently. What do you think?
I bought it mainly to hear the background music by Sean O'Riada, said to be the father of the traditional music revival of the 20th century, and am only into the films a short way so far, but I'm struck by what a valuable resource of the times that these films are.
On the same subject, CBS came out with a two-record album and book on the Irish Rebellion on its 50th Anniversary. Narrated by Charles Kuralt, the album featured the music of Clancys/Makem and commentary by many who took part in the rebellion and were still alive in the 1960s. I'd love the see the album reproduced on CDs.
