Re: Da Reel Thing

Enjoy! Great quality Scottish tunes. Also the first tune in track 15 is called "Foula Reel" but is a jig…

Re: Da Reel Thing

OK. "Foula Reel" is the name of the set. There are only 4 jigs here, beginning with "Aith Rant."

Re: Da Reel Thing

It should also be worth mentioning here that both tracks 1 and 17 (which have the same tunes) start with a very, very short piano introduction which sounds like "The Drunken Sailor" but the album does not consider it a tune on here.
