11 Turner & Kirwan Of Wexford – Father ’Reilly Says Goodbye
And, as Father Reilly says goodbye, so does this rock odyssey. As better quality recordings or additional tracks become available the volumes will be updated and any changes listed, but having covered the dawn of the beat groups up to the excesses of prog rock, this seems like a good point to stop and wait for someone else to take the baton for the next chapter – the new wave and punk reaction – but not me.
