I’ll be back to finish this, surprised it wasn’t already here, so this is a quick addition. The ‘gan ainms’ are old standards that just need confirming, naming, and then making sure they link up.

However, I’ve been here before, having entered a very large multi-version take with this name, one with history, that got axed, and after an immense amount of work linking it up to its many shorter relatives. This one is in 3-parts, and isn’t already on this site. I may play it safe and give the transcription for it here in the comments? I might risk getting it axed again? :-/

The second jig seems to be a 2-part version of "The Jig of Slurs", but I’m still looking…

I dunno on the cd version, but on my loved and worn LP ( learnt my first strathspey from it, Miss Drummond of Perth…), The Flowers of Edinburgh are followed by the "Old Grey Cat"…
