 О, Clannad 2, ништяк. А скажите, москвичи, у вас случайно первого их альбома,
73 года, нету? А вообще ты, я думаю, на правильном пути. Так со всеми бывает -
сперва "кельтские смеси" (это, наверное, как питательная среда для всяких
бактерий), потом Clannad и Silly Wizard, Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention,
Planxty, еще Стивелл какой-нибудь, James Galloway, потом Chieftains, Dubliners,
 Clancy Brothers, а потом, глядишь, и старый Ян какую-нибудь мандолинку или
скрипочку в руки возьмет. Давай-давай.

                I have heard this was also released on LP as "The Pretty Maid"
                in 1982, same catalog number (Philips).

                Produced by John Cunan at Eamonn Andrews Studios

                LP Boot Records ITB 4016 (Canada)

                I believe that this is their first album; I found
                this in Canada in summer 1974.  Copyright is 1973.
                Very early and a bit raw; the band's heart is on
                its sleeve here.[JMC]

        [Rumour has it that not only is this album out of print but that the
         master tapes have been lost - GM]
