Notes

"Come in Dungannon I know your knock" is the password for Sean Dynes.
This is his second album on Homespun Records, the first being "Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore", HRL 113.
Sean was the lead singer of the well known folk group, the Jolly Tinkermen in the late sixties and went solo some time after the group disbanded.
This album contains a lot of requested ballads and this is Sean's interpretation of them.
