Clarification of Track Listing -

Having seen the way the original track listing was abridged by the system - a few notes of clarification to help avoid confusion between the tunes:-

Track 4: Two tunes, both titled Effie Glasgow, the first a Strathspey, followed by a hornpipe.

Track 5: Three tunes, all titled Elgin Strathspey & Reel Players. A classic March, Strathspey and Reel set.

Track 6: Two tunes, both titled James Macpherson, the first a Strathspey, follwed by a reel.

Track 9: Two tunes, both titled Harry Glasgow, the first a Slow Air, followed by a Hornpipe.

Tracks 3 and 7: William Macpherson and Willie Macpherson respectively. The first a Hornpipe composed by the late Shetland Fiddler Arthur Robertson; the second a Polka composed by Bill Brian
