Eddie Kelly has made his comprehensive discography available and this has filled in many gaps, particularly in the early years. This discography includes Willy Veurheulpen's tremendous vinyl listings and Jens Kilian, Oskar Itzinger, Suzanne Uniacke, Claudia Weissman-Stahl and Jens Kaufmann have added CD information. Peter Dwyer also adds a Ronnie Drew album. The debt to Eddie Kelly is enormous. Per Solli has added some final touches. Olli Serin, Roland Birchby, Robert Pollard, Paco Peña, Alan Crozier, Paul Magnussen and Robert Alfredsson have chipped in. Danny Moore has added early LP work.

1964 Fleadh Ceoil Gael-Linn CEF 013 Danny Moore reports that Barney McKenna and Ronnie Drew played a reel The Sailor on the Rock on the compilation LP Fleadh Ceoil, issued by Gael-Linn, an Irish cultural organisation. Fleadh Ceoil had about sixteen items recorded in the streets of Castleblaney, County Monaghan, where the All-Ireland Fleadh was held that year 1964. 1964 The Hoot'nanny Show Waverley ZLP 2032 Recordings made around Edinburgh 1962 - 1963. Includes one track - Mason's Apron - by Barney McKenna accompanied by Ronnie Drew. It is believed to have been recorded before The Dubliners commenced in 1962. Tom Beveridge reports that this is Volume 2, introduced and produced by W.Gordon Smith, recorded in Edinburgh. 1964 Folk Festival - Festival Folk Waverley ZLP 2033 Reissued as World Record Club WRC ST890 Recorded live at the 1963 Edinburgh Festival with The Corries, Ray & Archie Fisher etc. Regarded by some as first Dubliners album. Includes following tracks: Barnyards of Dalgety (led by Luke Kelly) I'm a Rover The Dubliners Sweets of May The Dubliners Father Murphy's Air Barney McKenna Peggy Lettermore The Dubliners In addition support is provided on the following tracks: Bog Down in the Valley-O Air Falalalo Phyllis Malcolm reports that she possesses a single of Barney McKenna playing the Mason's Apron backed with Father Murphy's Air both taken from the Waverley LPs. 1964 Irish Folk Night Decca LK 4633 Recorded live at Folksong El Toro, London, 29 June 1964, and also includes Margaret Barry, Michael Gorman etc. The Dubliners tracks are: Little Beggarman Sweets of May Ratcliffe Highway Three Lovely Lasses Down by the Liffeyside Bonny Lass of Fyvie In addition Luke Kelly sings with Dave Phillips on two tracks: Wild Mountain Thyme Gentleman Soldier Surprisingly Decca have never reissued this album or used any of the material in compilations. This album was actually released immediately following the first Transatlantic release.
The original and long-standing line-up was Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Ciaron Bourke, Barney McKenna and John Sheehan. Bobby Lynch replaced Luke Kelly for the second Transatlantic LP. 1964 The Dubliners Transatlantic TRA 116 The Wild Rover The Ragman's Ball Preab San Ol High Reel The Holy Ground Tramps and Hawkers Home Boys Home Rocky Road to Dublin Banks of the Roses I'll tell my Ma Swallow's Tail Reel Jar of Porter Love is Pleasing The Nightingale Released as `The Dubliners with Luke Kelly'. Luke Kelly was more `out' than `in' the Dubliners at this time. This album was reissued as `The Dubliners in Session' (Hallmark SHM 652) with a label date of 1964 although the reissue was about 1970. Three tracks were cut from this reissue: The Ragman's Ball I'll tell my Ma The Nightingale The Ragman's Ball and I'll tell my Ma appeared on the compilation `It's The Dubliners' (Hallmark HM 615, 1969). The Nightingale was reissued on `The Patriot Game' (Hallmark SHM 738, 1971). Paul Magnussen points out that the tune labelled The Swallow Tail Reel is in fact a medley of The Swallow Tail Reel (O'Neill 536) and The High Reel (O'Neill 721) from O'Neill's Dance Music of Ireland. The tune labelled The High Reel is actually a medley of two totally different tunes. The second one is certainly The Boyne Hunt (O'Neill 514, Willie Clancy 142). The first one resembles The Beauty Spot and has been recorded elsewhere as Joe Madden's Reel and Gorman's Reel. Paul Magnussen now reports.... According to Barney, the title of the first tune is "Códháirdeachais", meaning "Congratulations". (This an old, i.e. pre-1948 spelling; the current spelling would be "Comhghairdeas") So the mystery is explained.
1965 The Dubliners in Concert Transatlantic TRA 124 Recorded live at Cecil Sharp House, London, 4 December 1964. Luke Kelly had by now left The Dubliners and was replaced on this album by Bobby Lynch. (His only recording with the group). This album also marks the recording debut of John Sheehan. Roddy MacCorley The Twang Man Sligo Maid/Colonel Rodney The Woman from Wexford The Patriot Game Roisin Dubh Air --- Fa La La Lo Peggy Lettermore Easy and Slow My Love is in America The Kerry Recruit The Old Orange Flute The Donegal Reel/The Longford Collector The Leaving of LiverpoolIn 1989 the German Line label issued a CD 'Dubliners Anthology' (LC 0372) which features 12 tracks from the Transatlantic years. One of them - 'Sea Shanty' - is actually a live version of 'Roddy McCorley'. The arrangement is similar to the one on the 'In Concert' LP. Ciaran sings it, reports Jens Kaufmann.
And Jens Kaufmann also reports that there is a different studio version of 'The Kerry Recruit', sung by Ronnie with banjo accompaniement by Barney, on the Transatlantic Double LP 'The Best of The Dubliners Volume 2'. Jens thinks this may be a very early unissued recording from the first Transatlantic session, as there is a nearly identical 1962-version on the CD 'Ceolnah Eireann - The Traditional Music of Ireland from the Sound Archives of RTE' - also featuring Ronnie and Barney.
1966 Finnegan Wakes Transatlantic TRA 139 Finnegan's Wake Sunshine Hornpipe/The Mountain Road Monto The Dublin Fusiliers Chief O'Neill's Favourite The Sea around us McAlpine's Fusiliers Hot Asphalt The Glendalough Saint Within a mile of Dublin Will you come to the Bower Nelson's Farewell
1967 The Best of The Dubliners Transatlantic TRA 158 This album is culled from TRA SP 3, TRA SP 8, TRA SP 9, TRA 116, TRA 124, TRA EP 136, TRA 139. Off to Dublin in the Green Sunshine Hornpipe; The Mountain Road Will You Come to the Bower Peggy Lettermore Donegal Reel; The Longford Collector Roddy McCorley I'll Tell My Ma The Mason's Apron The Foggy Dew The Old Orange Flute Roisin Dubh The Holy Ground
EP's (Extended Play) records: super singles containing four or five tracks were very popular in the late Fifties/ early Sixties and usually contained material culled from albums. But occasionally containing material not used on albums. The Dubliners released four EP's with Transatlantic Records. Two certainly contained material not found on the contemporary albums and it is believed the other two did in fact contain material extracted from albums. These EP's are now rarer than gold dust. Eddie Kelly has been tracking them down for over twenty years and so far has found only one - In Person - the only copy he has ever seen. Amazingly Per Solli of Norway has supplied the missing tracks. 1964 In Person featuring Ronnie Drew TRA EP 121 Eddie Kelly believes that the tracks on this record were recorded at the same session that produced the first Transatlantic album. The tracks have never been reissued or used in any compilation to date. But now Transatlantic have a reissue series and the tracks are released on the second volume. Tracks are: Rare Old Mountain Dew McAlpine's Fusiliers Willie Gannon Mrs McGrath The last three tracks now turn up on the second CD of 'Ageless Classics - The Transatlantic Years revisited' (SMD CD 160), a 30-track double-CD released on the Snapper label in 1998 reports Jens Kaufmann. Unfortunately 'Mountain Dew' is missing. 1965 The Dubliners Sampler TRA EP 129 Per Solli states: Peggy Lettermore The Ragman's Ball The Sligo Maid/Colonel Rodney Home Boys Home All included on `It's The Dubliners' (Hallmark HM 615, 1969) apart from `Home Boys Home' which is on `The Patriot Game' (Hallmark SHM 738, 1971). 1966 Mainly Barney TRA EP 136 Per Sollo states: King of the Fairies The Mason's Apron Kitty come down from Limerick The Cuilin All included on `The Patriot Game' (Hallmark SHM 738, 1971) 1967 More of The Dubliners TRA EP 152 Eddie Kelly has never seen a copy of this record. Track content not known but probably contains reissued material as group was now with Major Minor Records. Per Solli states: Master McGrath Walking in the Dew The Cook in the Kitchen Boulavogue All included on `It's the Dubliners' (Hallmark HM 615).
1969 It's The Dubliners HM 615 Included because content includes material not found on albums but may have been included in EP's.

1972 Hometown EMI Columbia SCX 6492 A short lived release with no publicity and no known reissue has made this a very rare Dubliners recording.
