Golden Keyboard - Reel
Perhaps the most widely known and played tunes of all Martin's compositions. The tune was named by Martin's brother Brendan who recorded the reel on his 1975 Ceili House album. Brendan grew up listening to Martin's compositions and would often play them at sessions unbeknownst to Martin who was too shy in thinking they weren't good enough. In the words of Earle Hitchner/Irish Echo, the tune is so beautifully structured, so appealing, so “right” that it simply must be from a master composer whose namelessness testifies to the tune’s age.
