Music for the Sets, Volumes 1, 2, 4 & 5:

Talented musicians, but these early cassette tapes for dancing the sets of quadrilles to, amongst the first for this purpose, helped contribute to a rise in tempos that went la-la in the 80s and for which the tradition still suffers from. They are rushed and in my opinion not great for dancing to, but some lovely tunes none the less ~
