Looking up tune combinations in sets
There’s many a time I’ve run across a tune I liked and searched for it here on thesession to see what tunes it has been recorded with and then attempted to put together a set. That isn’t an approach that has always yielded good results.
So, since I’ve been a bit OCD on collecting trad albums off of YouTube I thought I’d just do some data mining as to which recordings are sets (2 or more commas in the name) and filtering those results into a file.
For what it’s worth, I’m talking about the following numbers of albums/artists and tunes etc.
The result is a file of 1753 known sets in alphabetical order. The artists are not included in the results. This is hardly a complete list since there are lots of albums that aren’t on YouTube but if you’re curious about a specific tune and its order in a set, here’s the file and you’re welcome to download it to see if you can find what you need.
Unfortunately, I was unable to completely filter out various language diacritical marks so some entries got sort of "munched" up by my system software. Still, there’s enough information there to be able discern the names of the tunes in the set.
