Big Tim,

You may check out Dick Gaughan's website (I managed to get to it by putting Dick Gaughan on the alta vista search engine and it came right up). I recall he was mentioning in the recordings section some information about the various five hand reel members. I remember being in London in 1977 when For A' That was released and seeing the band at the Marquee club. I was bowled over by how good the whole band was. That night Tom sang "P Stands for Paddy" and "Maid of Listowell." Not to mention the fiddling. That should give you a little more information.
