Dance Music Of Ireland: Volume 3 CD Version by Matt Cunningham

This is the tune listing for the CD version of Volume 3. The CD version is markedly different to the original cassette version, the tune listing of which is in Matt Cunningham’s tune book "Dance Music of Ireland" covering Volumes 1-10 of the series.

The tunes on the CD that are not listed in the tune book are,
Track 3: Maids of Mount Cisco
Track 4: Miss Montgomery/Mulhaire’s No 9/Eileen O’Callaghan’s/McFadden’s Handsome Daughter
Track 5: Walls Of Liscarrol, The
Track 6: Chicago, The
Track 23: Going To The Well For Water
Track 24: Tomorrow Morning

Note that on Track 25 the sole tune "Trip To The Cottage" is played 12 times (I think!) - it is, after all, intended for set dancing.

These tracks are the same on the cassette and the CD: 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 22

These tracks are partly similar on the cassette and CD: 14, 17, 25

I’m very grateful to Ceolachan for the help and encouragement he has given me in ferreting out this tune list, and for correcting a couple of my errors. If there are any remaining errors they are mine alone; if anyone notices one please email me and I’ll take appropriate action.

Thanks, great work Trevor, much appreciated… Slainte has agreed to do #11… I got distracted from my efforts but will return soon…
