The Topic LP of John Reilly's songs "The Bonny Green Tree" 12T359 seems to have been a fairly limited issue, and I haven't come across many second-hand copies, even on eBay.

Having said that, a number of the songs from that LP have since been reissued by Topic:-
In The Voice of the People series
Vol 3 TSCD653 Track 13 The Well Below the Valley
Vol 7 TSCD657 Track 19 The Rosin Box
Vol 10 TSCD660 Track 8 Adieu Unto All True Lovers
Vol 15 TSCD665 Track 7 Old Carathee
Vol 17 TSCD667 Track 2 Lord Baker
                      Track 13 Once There Lived A Captain

and also on the Topic compilation Irish Voices
TSCD702 Track 5 The Raggle Taggle Gypsy.

Try your local record library if you're anywhere near one; there's always a chance. I found the LP at the central library in Sheffield, and (because I couldn't find one to buy) made a tape copy for myself. I don't have the gear for copying tapes at the moment, but if you need the sleevenotes (they are good) that wouldn't be too difficult to arrange.

TG4 (the mostly Irish Language TV station in Ireland) has just started showing a series on the music of travellers/tinkers. The first program included archive material on John Reilly and the work done by Tom Munnelly, the collector. John Reilly was a wonderful singer.

Martin is right; John Reilly was a wonderful singer.
Comhaltas refused to give him a booking because he wasn't 'Sean Nós'!
He died of malnutrition after being found collapsed in the derelict house he was living in in Boyle.

Well it wasn't actually.
It was deprivation and neglect brought about by the same bigotry that is fuelling the present day ethnic cleansing that is taking place in Ireland today – helped along by those who are happy to look the other way – and those who find the plight of travellers funny!

If anyone is still looking, there's a copy on ebay at the moment.

I am not the seller, don't know him/her either.

Thanks Peter for that link. I finally managed to get hold of a copy of the John Reilly LP a while ago, but there are a lot of interesting available LPs from the same seller (I don't know who it is either), some of which I've never seen on sale before; they obviously belonged to a serious collector.
