Sorry for my intemperate opening to my last post. I got a bit carried away there.

Also it was Arthur McBride that Andy recorded with Planxty. I've never heard Andy singing the song except possibly as a backing vocalist to Paul Brady, who recorded it on the Welcome Here Kind Stranger album in 1978. I think my memory is right though when I say that Paul brought the song back from the states with him.
