Excellent Irish flute compilation, with Eddie Moloney, John Carlos, Jack Dolan, Josie McDermott, Packie Duignan, Patsy Hanly, John Joe  Gardiner, & Marcus Hernon. The recordings seem to be archive recordings, some of which have appeared on RTE radio. They provide an excellent cross section of several Irish flute playing styles.
