  • Rare and Notable Single & EP Releases
    • In Person … featuring Ronnie Drew: 1964 EP
      • In Person … featuring Ronnie Drew: 1965 - Transatlantic TRA EP 121 EP
      • The tracks on this EP are among the very few that were not subsequently re-released for many years.
      • While just about all of the Dubliners "Transatlantic" tracks began to re-appear, in the late 60's, on various compilations — these were left out of the mix.
      • "Rare Old Mountain Dew" was first re-released in 1997 on The Complete Dubliners.
      • "Willie Gannon" is included on the 1998 compilation, Ageless Classics.
      • These versions of "McAlpine's Fusiliers" & "Mrs. McGrath" only other appearances (that I know of) are on the 2003 expanded CD re-release of The Dubliners with Luke Kelly.
    • All For Me Grog: 1967 - Major Minor MM 521 [7"] (Ronnie Drew vocals)
      • "All For Me Grog" with Ronnie Drew on vocals was released as a single only and does not appear on any album.
      • It was then re-recorded with Ciarán Bourke singing the lead — perhaps at the same time — as the arrangement is very similar.
      • However, I don't believe this version (by Ciarán) was ever released as a single, and it doesn't appear on any Dubliners' original LP release.
      • John Lynch confirms that the first compilation this version appears on is the 1973 One-Up LP, Whiskey On A Sunday.
      • Since I don't own every Dubliners' compilation, which is probably virtually impossible, I don't know on how many releases this version (by Ciarán) appears — it is more uncommon.
      • When "All For Me Grog" is included on an anthology or compilation, it is usually Ciarán's version from the 1974 LP, The Dubliners Live, which incidentally was last album with Ciarán Bourke.
    • The Comical Genius: 1969 - Major Minor MM 608 & 1971 - EPIC C5-122 [7"]
      • This version of a "Comical Genius" — sung by Barney McKenna — is one of very few tracks that does not appear on any other Dubliners release.
      • Barney also performs this song on the 1972 live LP, Hometown — this is the track (version) that is included on several compilation LPs & CDs.
    • Bold Princess Royal: 1969 - Tribune TRS 138 & 1969/70 - EMI Columbia DB 8671 [7"]
      • "Bold Princess Royal" — apparently recorded in 1969 during the sessions for the LP, At Home … — is perhaps the rarest Luke Kelly track.
      • Other than the single releases, this track only appears on the French release of At Home …The Dubliners (En Irlande Ils Chantent Aussi)
      • To my knowledge, "Bold Princess Royal" (and the 1970 single, "Raglan Road") are the only studio tracks Luke Kelly recorded with the Dubliners that have never been included any Dubliners/Luke Kelly compilations
      • .
    • Raglan Road: 1970 - Tribune TRS 150 & Chyme CHS 007 [7"]
      • Other than being released as a single (twice), this original version of "Raglan Road" by Luke Kelly (with the Dubliners) only appears on the Canadian LP release of At Home with the Dubliners.
      • Luke Kelly also recorded "Raglan Road" for the 1982 Dubliners LP, Prodigal Sons, but no tracks by Luke appear on the original album.
      • John Lynch states, "The instrumentation to the 1982 vocal was, according to Fiachra Sheahan (son of John), added posthumously and so Luke never actually heard how it turned out. Luke was apparently very ill at the time he laid down the vocal."
      • As you may know, this version of "Raglan Road" was posthumously released on Luke's Legacy in 1986, and has subsequently included on several compilations.
      • Again, to my knowledge, "Raglan Road" (and the 1969 single, "Bold Princess Royal") are the only studio tracks Luke Kelly recorded with the Dubliners that have never been included any Dubliners/Luke Kelly compilations.
    • Hand Me Down My Bible: 1971 - EMI Columbia DB 8773 & Tribune TRS 152 [7"]
      • This single release/studio version of "Hand Me Down My Bible" did not appear on any original Dubliners LP.
      • This track was not included on any compilation until 2004's The Best of Luke Kelly CD compilation, which is the only other release of this track.
      • The "live" version of this song — from Hometown — is one that is included on many Dubliners compilations.
    • The Beggar Man: 1971 - EMI Columbia & Plough PLS 003 [7"]
      • This single release of "The Beggar Man — apparently recorded in 1969 during the sessions for the LP, At Home with … — with lead vocals by Ronnie Drew did not appear on any original Dubliners LP
      • This track was not included on any compilation until 2003's The Best of the Original Dubliners CD compilation, which is the only other release of this track.
      • As with "Bold Princess Royal", it is stated on Wikipedia that "some rare pressings" of At Home with … include this track (see above).
      • The arrangement on this is song a very interesting — Luke's 5-string banjo is very prominent, with tin whistle, mandolin and a heavy bass-line, but no fiddle or tenor banjo.

  • Notes:
    • This portion of the Dubliners' discography is incomplete … an on-going work in progress.
    • Many of these singles are not in my collection — with information from other sources.
