Not a reel, but the last rant in a Taylor/Hutton/Atkinson set. Details of tempo etc @ https://thesession.org/tunes/3360.
Composed by Mitchell for the Cheviot Ranters. Goes with a composed dance of the same name. I guess this dates from the late fifties or early sixties.
This is N.. hardcore stuff here.
Composer was Billy Miller, fiddler with the Cheviot Ranters in the nineteen-fifties. He was no longer with the band when they recorded three LPs for Topic in the early seventies. The three Topic albums are all available as digital downloads from Amazon etc.
