amendments still needed

I’ve been unable to trace the tunes being played on tracks 1, 2, and 12 (it’s not the same Estonian Waltz that’s currently listed on the site even though it has picked up that link)

The Cottage in the Grove is also a different tune to the one that has auto-linked here, but you can get the version played on the CD as an ABC from Henrik Norbeck: http://www.norbeck.nu/abc/

It may be listed on this site under a different title, but of no-one can pin it down to an existing tune then I’ll add it later, as it’s a nice one.

recording edited…

This CD takes a rather laid back approach to tune names! Track 11 (1st track on CD 2) ‘Cottage in the Grove’ now updated as McGovern’s Favourite.
