Compass Records Group is proud to re-issue legendary Irish folk group Altan’s 9th studio album, Local Ground.

The album, which was originally released in the US in 2005 by Narada Records, has been unavailable for several years. The 14-track re-issue includes a bonus track “Andy Dixon’s / Ríl Chois Claidigh / The Swilly Reel,” previously only available on the Japanese release (also long out of print). Compass Records, Altan’s label partner since the 2012 release of The Poison Glen and home to most of the band’s catalog, is delighted to be making this classic album available again.
