This is a pretty old recording of sets from the Boys’ Highlands and Islands Tour, dating back from the days when Robin Morton still played with the band. Strangely enough, though, I can find no copyright date on the sleeve of my vinyl copy. It was originally released, at least in America, on Flying Fish Records (FF 070). Very good album.

Oh, since the names there don’t help much, I should also add that set 7 is a slip jig, followed by a reel, concluding with a two-step.

Gorman’s Two Step

Gorman’s Two-Step here is just a different version (fast and rhythmically altered) of the slip jig usually known as the Promenade.
