Moving on, the next album in the Globestyle series, The Gentleman Pipers, was entirely devoted to the instrument upon which Martin Carthy, seeing Séamus Ennis play, vowed it was akin to watching “a man wrestle with an octopus”. The album drew heavily from the original three volume Classics of Irish Piping series, featuring Liam Walsh, William Andrews and Leo Rowsome, adding selections recorded by Willie Clancy (from The Breeze from Erin), the solo albums from Pat Mitchell and Felix Doran, Séamus Ennis’s The Wandering Minstrel, a couple of tracks recorded by Michael O’Brien extracted from 1980’s The Flags of Dublin (recorded with Paddy Glackin and Mick Gavin) plus two from Seán McAloon from the Drops of Brandy LP.
