Re: More Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts

Track #1, 3rd reel, is more commonly known today as "The Honeymoon".
Track #4 - "The Cup Of Tea" is not the well-known 3-part reel. I have heard the same tune played by an American old-timey 5-string banjo player who had it as a version of the Scottish strathspey/reel "Caberfeidh", and have seen it in a book somewhere under that title.

The first jig on the final track is as near as damn it to what is commonly known as "Garrett Barry’s" jig today.

This is a very fine collection of tunes, very well played, as you would expect from the players involved. Highly recommended.

Track #2 - "Coffee and Tea" is a setting of the tune played today under the title "Connie The Soldier".

Track #10 - tune order is wrong. "Drummond Lasses" is the middle tune, "Over Young" the third.
