Track Listing

I just bought this cd from the place where I work, mostly because it has a recording of The Shelf Set by Skylark. I put it in my car’s cd player on my way home from work and went straight to that track (#5) and it just sounded wrong. Upon listening to the whole recording, I found the Shelf Set was actually the FOURTH track on this cd. Also, the first track is a medley, the first of which is Tonra’s, but while I recognize the other tune/tunes I can’t place them. After Tonra’s there is either two different settings of the same tune, or two very similar tunes as part of the medly for track one. Does anybody know the names of the tunes? Are there any other misidentified tracks on this cd?

Listened to the "Tonra" set by "Cran". It’s only listed as 2 tunes on their CD, "Brendan Tonra’s", followed by "The Banks[Shores] of Lough Gowna". I think Ronan Browne plays an Amin version in the middle, then they all play the more commonly-known Bm version.
