More vault digging

After the recent “fan tape” haul, we have some more rare Kirsty now online courtesy of Nicholas Brown on his YouTube channel here.

Go listen to long lost tracks “Germany” (co-written with Alan Lee Shaw) and “Lullaby for Ezra” (co-written with Lu Edmonds).  You will also find two songs from the  rather hard to find Philip Chevron musical “Jack Rooney In Person” featuring Kirsty, which was abandoned after her death.  These are among the last recordings Kirsty made and you can listen to “I Believe In Love” and “The Great Silence” with Ronnie Drew.
