D: Dervish “Spirit”
Z: John Norvell

Dervish plays everything up 1/2 step, but this was transcribed as if you were playing on an Eb flute, or tuning/capo up a fret on stringed instruments.

Dervish plays the “A” part twice the first time through then the B part, and then plays the A/B form as transcribed here thereafter.

The liner notes say: “The last reel we picked up from a great neighbouring band ‘At the Racket’, the tune being associated with Gabe O’Sullivan, flute player originally from Galway.”

Murphy’s Greyhound

Isn’t this Murphy’s Greyhound with the A and B parts switched around. I don’t know the tune super well, but here’s the link to the tune:

This is one of my favorite tunes on Spirit.

Re: Gabe O’Sullivan’s

Indeed it is “Murphy’s Greyhound” with parts swapped.
