Jackson’s Polka

Setting one from Jerry O’Brien’s Accordion Instructor, this tune was recorded by his student Joe Derrane in the early 50s, around the time of the publication of the book; its contents may be viewed here: http://www.itma.ie/gd/digitallibrary/score/JOB_ACC1/ Setting two is from the manuscripts of James Morrison. I’ve set the last two parts as they appeared in the manuscript, but bear in mind that the penultimate part was labeled "6," the final one "5" - thus perhaps they were meant to be played in the reverse order shown here. Curiously enough Jackson’s was recorded by a student of Morrison’s, box player Timmy Cronin, on a 1950s LP; but Cronin played the O’Brien/Derrane setting, not this one.
