Cameron’s Got His Wife Again

This 18c strathspey is the original version of "Gullane" which I posted yesterday. The source is John Chambers’ collection.

"This tune, Gullane, is not the same as ‘The Gullane’ already posted on this site, and is derived from (this) 18c strathspey ‘Cameron’s Got His Wife Again’ ~ ."
