Old Time Scottish Fiddle Music from Cape Breton Island

Rounder CD 7024 issued 1998, but with remastered previously unissued 1977 recordings from this legendary Canadian fiddler.
According to the sleeve notes, these reunited Joe MacLean with Lila Hashem, piano, Peter Dominic, rhythm (and Marie MacLellan on the last track - 1961 house party recording).
Apologies for the various ‘untitled’ tunes but I have listed these according to the liner. Will modify at a later date if I can definitely identify the tune(s).

I wonder where the jig (or slide?) “Annie Golletti” (3C) comes from, since there’s no link to it. Golletti sounds as though it could be an Italian name. It puts me in mind as somewhat similar to the English jig “Holm Band Tune.”
