Robert Lamb Children of Lir
Posted by Dunstan Skinner on September 11, 2016, 7:32 pm
A previous post under the Fiona Shaw/Robert Lamb Children of Lir release on Naxos inquired about a 1967 lp of a previous trombonist Robert Lamb arrangement and recording of The Children of Lir. The label was London Saga Psyche. The narrator was Ferdy Mayne. The arrangement was quite different, and the narrative almost completely different from the recent remake. This lp is rare. To the person who posted previously: I too am looking for this recording. Although Irish, the recent one pales in comparison with the original 1967 Ferdy Mayne recording.
