Track 3 Doug Macphee is a Cape Brenton Pianist.

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

Track 3 Sir Reginald MacDonald was a royal navy officer born 19 October 1820 and died 15 December 1899.

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

On track 20 "Muileann Dubh (Black Hill)" should actually read "Muileann Dubh (Black Mill)".

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

Track 24, Old Scottish is known as On The Sly or Angus Allan Gillis’ in Cape Breton.

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

Track 22, Miss C Crawford’s has been incorrectly titled (original recording was on Island Treasure - Vol. 1). It’s actually Miss E MacLeod:

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

None of the "Sandy MacIntyre’s" (tracks 7 and 13) are https://thesession.org/tunes/375.
The one that ends track 7 is a reel in Am. In track 13 the first is a strathspey in A and the second is indeed a reel in A but not "Sandy MacIntyre’s Trip to Boston".

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

And the "Scotty Fitzgerald’s" jig in G (track 14) is not the same as the one on this site (https://thesession.org/tunes/3579) which, although transcribed in G, is far more usually played in A.

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

Tracks 13 to 23, inclusive, are taken, in identical track order, from Island Treasure Vol. 1 (from 1998). Accompaniment on those tracks is by Doug MacPhee (piano), John Allan Cameron (12 string guitar) and Dave MacIsaac (bass and 6 string guitar).

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

I have this recording and would have posted it were I not so lazy. It’s nice, has some rare tunes. I like the set with "Greig’s Pipes" and also the "Caledonia’s Wail for Neil Gow" set.

Re: The Sandy MacIntyre Collection: Cape Breton Fiddle (Steeped And Served)

On track 40 (yet again!), the name listed for the last tune, "Upside Down in Eden Court", is a mislabelling, as it is on many Cape Breton recordings. It is actually a different Gordon Duncan reel called "The Fourth Floor", and I have edited the link to reflect this. What a tune!
