Ordered mine June 12th but have not received it yet. I know that M is not all happy about the service from Pledge for this album. I don't do downloads unless it is the only thing available.

I prefer physical copies to downloads in most cases.

Shipping here is pretty insane though and I really can't tell the difference between a CD track and a properly ripped MP3-320.

Mine is on the way, but with cross-border shipping, it could be another week or two before it gets here.

Here's the transcript of an interview Máiréad did with 67 Music regarding her family album, Devil's Bit Sessions as well as her violin line:

Some of the interesting points from the interview:
- It sounds like her original plan was to just do Hibernia, but then was inspired to do a family album too
- As the title suggests, it's a "session" type album that was recorded live over a single weekend ... like a "1-mic, 1-take" kind of deal
- Over the years, the Nesbitt family basically put all the tunes they accumulated over the years in a dropbox and chose 19 of them
- For the group numbers, there were up to 14 people playing at the one time
- There was at least one non-family member (an honorary member) in some of the songs: Eoghan Ó’ Neill, on acoustic bass
