"Joey Beatonโ€™s Reel" ~ includes sheet music (PDF) and two incomplete recordings (MP3s) by ~ Glenn Graham, & Robie & Isaac Fraser…

Great tune! Small correction…

The second to last measure of the A part:

| A,/B,/A, CD E DC |

should probably be:

| A,/B,/A, CD E2 DC |

This is actually my favorite Beaton tune so far… Thanks for sharing it!
