(2006 re-release of 1985 recording) 12 tracks: Sally Lennon’s * Walk Away * Skidoo * The Chicago Set * Beautiful Affair * Silent Dreams * In Our World * The Golden Stud * The Mason’s Apron * Bonus Studio Recordings: Sally Lennon’s * In Our World * The Mason’s Apron.

Throughout the 1980s Stockton’s Wing were labelled Pop, Rock, Folk, Trad, Celtic Fusion (and a lot worse) by different publications, but for the tens of thousands who attended the almost 1500 performances across Ireland, the UK and America, Stockton’s Wing just meant good music and a great night out.

This album captures that feeling. Produced by their good friend Bill Whelan, the recording will without doubt bring back many memories of their youth, to many now fortysomethings.

The album, which has been digitally remastered for this release, also includes three bonus studio recordings of the band from the same period.

While the band was formed by a quartet of All-Ireland champion musicians in Maurice Lennon (fiddle), Paul Roche (flute), Kieran Hanrahan (banjo) and Tommy Hayes (bodhran), it was the introduction of singer/songwriter Mike Hanrahan in 1980 that shifted the emphasis from straight traditional music to a mix of fiery traditional sets combined with original songs and instrumentals.
