- Paul Brady - Welcome Here Kind Stranger (Re-mastered)
First released on vinyl on the Mulligan label in mid 1978, ‘Welcome Here Kind Stranger’ is Paul Brady’s first record as a solo artist after a decade associated with The Johnstons, Planxty and Andy Irvine. The album was immediately acclaimed by lovers of Irish music and later that year was chosen as Folk Album of the Year by Melody Maker, the leading British music paper at the time.
Much sought after, the album was never officially released on CD due to a breakdown in the relationship between Paul and the Mulligan label and remained out of print for many years. Perhaps inevitably, a bootleg version appeared on CD in the mid 1980s. Pressed up from a vinyl record, with needle noise, pops and cracks clearly audible, it was a poor reflection of the original recording. Now at last, re-mastered for the digital age and released on Paul’s own label PeeBee Music, this classic record is again available in all its original pristine glory.
