IRISH EYES

PETER DOYLE

Neil Gray

CD
Rarities

1st released  29th May, 2004

Peter first recorded When Irish Eyes Are Smiling at the age of 10, probably at the Wilbur Williams Studios in Northcote Victoria.  It was released on a 78rpm record with Lucky Devil on the other side.

He recorded the song again over 20 years later, but it would take more than another 30 years before that recording would find its way to a public release. 
From the Rarities liner notes:
Here is one of those magic moments in recording.  Peter was in Los Angeles in 1972 recording an album (not released) with manager and producer Glen Wheatley.  It was during one of the recording session breaks when Peter picked up a guitar, sat on a stool, and sang Irish Eyes.  The tape was rolling and captured this remarkable performance, and if you listen very closely you can just hear him laugh at the end.”
It was well worth the wait.
