Topic Records, 2002
Like The Wheels of the World Vol 1&2, I found Round The House in the music inventory of http://www.irishinmontana.com. You can purchase it through the session.org link to Amazon if it is available there, to support this site.
I have a particular liking for old recordings, the earlier the better.
There is a minor error in the track numbers in this tune listing. The correct listing is:
Track 2: "Mike Sullivan’s/Tom Billy’s (Fling and hornpipe for the set)"
Track 3 : "The Twenty-One Highland (Fling for the highland)"
Track 4: "Sean Hayes/If There Weren’t Any Women in the World (Tunes for the Barndance)"
Track 5: "The Little Fair Child (Song Air for the Old-Time Waltz)"
From then onwards add 2 to the listed track numbers. There are 28 in total.

2.) Johnny O’Leary
3.=2.66) Johnny Doherty, "The Twenty-One Highland"

Re: Round The House And Mind The Dresser: Irish Country House Dance Music
Just changed a few tunes misnamed on original recording, (and on Spotify, where I’ve just been listening).
So they now also link to the correct ones on the site.
track 2 "Mike Sullivan’s" is actually "Behind The Ditch In Pairc Anna
track 5 (shown 3-3 above) "The Little Fair Child" is actually "Statia Donnelly" played as a walrz
track 14 (shown 12 above) is the Mazurka version of "Shoe the Donkey"
Correcting the original tune listing to the correct numbering as listed by "ceolachan" would be good, but looks far too daunting and time consuming, and maybe no easy task ? (Jeremy ?)
