Name that tune (again)

Learned this a while back, and am tired of calling it "Unknown Reel in Gdorian"… surely someone knows the title…

This tune seems to be a Jerry Holland composition, "Billy MacLeod’s Reel". Recorded on his first solo album I think.

Billy the Hook

On Jerry Holland’s album "Master Cape Breton Fiddler" (1982) this is called "Billy the Hook" and composed by Jerry Holland (well spotted Sharon!").
