Mystery band on Northumberland Rant?
I recently purchased a number of Willie Taylor and the Shepherds tunes from the CD Northumberland Rant (via the iTunes store). Most of the tunes were mislabelled and it has taken a while to sort this out. One problem remains, a band, supposedly played by The Shepherds, with 3 tunes: Dance de Chez Nous, Aunt Mary’s Canadian Jig, Neil Taylor’s Jig. The band actually sounds like a pipe solo and only has 2 tunes on it. Here are the first eight bars of the first tune: (key of D major) |; f/e/ | df AB/c/ | d2 Ag | f>e df | fd df/e/ | df AB/c/ | d2 Ag | f2 e>f | d2 d :| . I suspect that something were wrong when the tunes were transferred from the original LP to the CD b/c the LP liner notes (downlloadable from the Smithsonian) give 3:28 as the length for the 3 tunes on the label, but the CD gives 2:37 as the length for the same 3 tunes. If anyone can identify the 2 tunes actually played on the CD and, if possible, tell me if Dance de Chez Nous, etc. are to be found elsewhere on the CD I will be grateful. If someone has the good fortune to own both the LP and the CD, it should be easy to clear the problem up.
