Here, on this first ever comprehensive retrospective of Christy's early works, we find a selection of songs from Christy's run of albums and live TV appearances from 1969 to 1981. Many of these tracks have only ever been available on long-lost vinyl pressings or in the case of the RTÉ and BBC performances, they have, until now, remained unreleased. 'This Early Years project has uncovered songs and recordings long since forgotten. Some tracks are rough and ready just as my life was back then, most bring back good memories of nights long gone, of songs long since sung. I am happy that these early works have been remastered, given a fresh context and a new lease of life. Thanks for listening'. Christy Moore, Dublin, August 2020.
