Automatic indexation of recording’s tune name on the tune section

Automatic indexation of recording’s tune name on the tune section

Let’s take Sean O Riada Sa Gaiety’s recording for example (https://thesession.org/recordings/1745). the tune is named as "The Whinny Hills Of Leitrim" by the poster (the name on the original LP was "Cnocain Aitinn Liatroma").
If you follow the link for that tune (automated by the database, I suppose), you find a tune that sounds great (also known as "Redican’s mother") BUT which is not the music heard on the recording …
So, how to correct the information ?
And how to submit a new tune corresponding to the - but already existing - recording’s name ?

Re: Automatic indexation of recording’s tune name on the tune section

My understanding is that the tunes are linked from the recordings in the database by name only. And since many tunes have multiple known names, and many different tunes may share the same name, there is often some confusion like that.

Try looking at a Paddy Fahy tune. It will show all the recordings that contain Paddy Fahy tunes, since they’re all named "Paddy Fahy’s".

The remedy for this is to make sure that Cnocain Aitinn Liatroma is in the tune archive (possibly even by a different name, in which case, you can say that it is also known as Cnocain Aitinn Liatroma), and then see if either the person who originally posted the recording, or Jeremy might be able to change the link.

That’s right Reverend, the phrase is: ‘Recordings of a tune by this name:’, which exactly is the case. No one is stating: recordings of this tune.

Obviously in the same family of tunes, but alcofribas’ version is different and a welcome addition.

Blimey. Who’d have thought it wouldn’t be in the database? alcofribas’ "version" posted above is definitely a different tune from the other one, and one which is a very common session tune in my experience.

It ought to be in the database. You’d better post it, alcofribas. (If I’d known it wasn’t here, I’d have posted it long ago myself.)

Of course, I have it slightly differently … and mine’s right. 😉
