Re: Recordings of the “Session of the Century”
I was at Track 2. Queally’s bar in 1985 in the afternoon. At, not in, because the place was so packed that we couldn’t get in and had to listen standing in the street. My mate taped it through the window but this seems to come from someone else’s recording. It sounds considerably speeded up to me. (They were playing in Eb.) The core of the session was Jackie Daly, Mairead and Frankie, Paul O’Shaughnessy, Eoin O’Neill on bouzouki and Mick O’Connor on banjo. Mary Bergin was there for bits of it. Later on in the afternoon most of them spilled across the road into Cleary’s kitchen where they were joined by Dermy Diamond and Henry Benagh - we were able to get in to that one!

Re: Recordings of the “Session of the Century”
@peter. If you are talking about "track 2" I’d say more than one recording was made because the one I have doesn’t have all the sets that are in the one Ralex posted, but does have a few others that don’t seem to be there. Mine was made by a friend from Melbourne that I have lost touch with and I don’t know that he’d want his name bandied about. I know that a few other people got copies of his tape at the time. It was made on a Sony Walkman, not the Professional model, and the quality was excellent. I say "was" because my copy at least was knackered from 25 years of repeated playing.

those comments were posted by a person named Stiamh

Although he mentions in the first message that it was his friend recording....and in the second message he seems to indicate his friend is from Melbourne.
