To the IRISH TIMES . 1.5.1978.
I didn’t sleep a wink last night after reading that Charles Acton , your revered music-critic, found his copy of my LP ” COLLECTION ONE ” was ” so badly warped that the start
of each side is hard to judge … ” ….
Meanwhile I have done it.
My new LP ” COLLECTION ONE ” is the first ever launching of his own work in this form by an Irish composer.
It is a milestone in Irish music.
I believe passionately in the record’s label, ” Self Help” .
The music of Irish composers must be played, replayed, discussed and judged….
Yes, it is sad that some umbrella organisation has not taken on re-distribution.
But in the meantime I will go it alone. …
