A Small Island (Traditional Music From Cork)

Track 1, tune 3 “Michael Coleman’s” linked automatically to a waltz of that name. It’s actually “Up Sligo!” and the link is now correct.

Track 3 is listed as on the sleeve as “The Three Tunes”. I amended the listing here to link to those three tunes.

Track 5, from the sleeve notes: ‘[“Carolan’s Dowry”]…is also called Captain Sudley. One of Edward Bunting’s informants told him the Carolan’s daughter, Siubhan Ní Chearbhalláin, married a s Sudley, a captain in the king’s army.’

Track 6 is wrongly named too. It’s listed as “Paddy O’Brien’s”, “The New House’ and “Sean Maguire’s” on the sleeve. In reality, “The New House” comes first, followed by another Paddy O’Brien tune, “The Boys of Lough Gowna”, then finally “Rosewood”.

Tack 8, tune 1, is not the “West the Hill” it automatically linked to.

Track 11, tune 1 is listed as “Barney Brannigan”. I’ve corrected the title and the link to “Ride A Mile”.
