THE CHILDREN OF LIR*

Sunbeam



CD

Released: 24th Aug 2018

£12.99


This psychedelic folk classic was recorded in 1974, and has gone on to become one of the rarest records ever issued in Ireland.

A glorious mixture of catchy melodies, soaring harmonies and biting acid guitar, it’s presented here complete with a 12-page booklet featuring rare photos and detailed sleevenotes, as well as six bonus tracks (including demos, non-album 45s and the soundtrack to the work’s original broadcast on Irish television), making it the most comprehensive edition of The Children Of Lir ever assembled.
