Chez Seychelles, X:2

I was captivated by this tune at a session in Edinburgh, must have been 25 years ago. Shortly afterwards I was sent a tape by an amateur American band with what they called "Satchell’s Waltz" (probably a corruption of "Seychelles"). Well, I never made the connection until now. Crivvens! I’ll post "Satchell’s Waltz" for interest, but it’s as if it were half-remembered. I’ve always liked it, though.

Re: Chez Seychelles

Often played more sprightly, as a mazurka, with the emphasis on the 2-3 beats instead of the the first beat as a waltz usually is played. At least from my playing and dancing experience with this tune.

Here is the version I learned many years ago.
