Michael Coleman and Michael Andrews: Lord Gordon's Reel

Another 78rpm side from fiddler Michael Coleman along with accompaniment by tenor guitar player, Michael "Whitey" Andrews. Andrews' son, Michael junior, recalled in an interview that Andrews was albino, which lead to his nickname, "Whitey." He had pink eyes and very poor eyesight. Although he could not read music, he had perfect pitch, learned music aurally, and had a great recall ability to retain music that he heard.
