The Holloway Road Fling

Hello all. I originally added this as a new setting on a different page here on the of the tune The Holloway Road Fling - from John Skelton and Kieran O’Hare’s album DOUBLE-BARRELLED. I believe that page mistakenly titled the reel version of The Cow That Ate The Blanket (the second tune on track 13 on the record instead of the third tune) as The Holloway Road Fling. I believe the third tune is actually The Holloway Road Fling. It was recommended that I post my version as a separate page instead of just another setting on that page - since it is actually a completely different tune. So I’m doing that now. I hope I’m not breaking any rules of etiquette or offending anyone. If in fact the other page of The Holloway Road Fling needs to change its title, I will leave that up to Jeremy or the original poster.

There is a comment on my setting on the other page (by Gimpy), and his ABC posting of what he hears on DOUBLE-BARRELLED - that even more accurately catches the nuance of the actual recording.

Re: The Holloway Road Fling

This might make things clearer :

Starts with “The Cow That Ate The Blanket” - original version as a jig
at around 1m John plays the same tune but as a reel
2m11s - “The Holloway Road Fling” = this tune.

I’m happy to add my transcription of the first go round of the tune as played on Double Barrelled. I’ve left out most of the cuts and taps except for two in Part B that are needed to match the notes as they sound on the recording. At least on the first pass, O’Hare or Skelton (I don’t have the liner notes) rolls none of the dotted quarter notes.
