Track 5, Lasagne

One track I love by this album is n.5. It’s played by Stockton’s Wing and simply titled "Lasagne". It’s a set of 4 jigs as follows:
1. Larry O’Gaff’s
2. The star of Munster (jig version)
3. Out on the ocean (G major)
4. Out on the ocean (A major)

As alluded to by Kenny, this is a cassette (from 1985). Couldn’t find a copy online, though, if anyone wanted to listen to that Stockton’s Wing track "Lasagne", I’m guessing it’s the same one on the 1982 Folk Festival album available on iTunes (Larry O’Gaffs first, and Out On The Ocean last … unfamiliar with Star Of Munster jig).
