Irish Music in London Pubs

Full of lively music and uplifted voices, this collection of Irish music was released in 1965 after on-sight recording at The King’s Arms and The Bedford Arms in London. Recorders Ralph Rinzler and Barry Murphy thank the proprietors of these buildings for giving them use of the recording machine and “the facilities of the place, including drinks.”
