Thanks Alex. I thought that since it was a duplicate it might get wiped so I stored it in my profile and then cut & pasted it!

Jacks is yet Alive/ Jacks Alive

Thanks Dow..The HLR play Chips and Shavens, Jack’s Alive and Dear Tobacco. Its a favourite set of mine as it was the first set I played publically in a session (and still do! )I some times follow Jack’s alive with Abraham Mackintosh’s jig version…K.G. 6/8 1/8

Jacks Alive

Great tune off the Album "Our Dear Dark Mountain" and the notes in the sleeve say it is a Monaghan tune

Re: Jacks Alive

Agreed DonaldK but ?different enough to have its own listing that links to the recording
