Callinan Flynn ‎ “Freedom’s Lament” 1972 rare Irish Folk
A vinyl-reissue of this 1972 album by two British singer-songwriters, recorded with Kieran O'Connor (Second Hand, Moving Finger) on drums and Romey Young on Jew’s Harp. The original edition on the collectable Mushroom label is much sought after and quite expensive. This edition, including two bonus tracks, is limited to 500 copies………… 

One of the top rarities, one of the few that sound like they are worth it, this duo supply a stunning sound, acid folk interesting instrumentation… sound clips of most tracks can be found dotted around the internet, youtube and the like… so, it’s out there if you are only interested in hearing it… but to own it is to own something special, these rare appear for sale, the small micro-label MUSHROOM, released only a handfull of records, being on the Mushroom label, they are all collectable, but the quality of the releases also provides good provenance… of course, don’t get confused with more recent Mushroom labels, or the Australian label… this is the one and the only true Mushroom label. ……..
