By Jim Sutherland, I think. Janine was a very fine singer who lived in Edinburgh in the early 80s. The "Shell" in the title I seem to remember referred to an ear-ring.
Janine’s Reel by Jim Sutherland- a different tune
Actually, the tune Janine’s Shell was composed by George Faux who was the fiddler in Hom Bru at the time. He replaced Davy Tulloch and played with the band prior to them returning to Shetland. George later joined Shegui.
Jim Sutherland’s tune, which I believe is about the same person, is called Janine’s Reel and can be found on the first Easy Club album.
I’ll try and post it tomorrow.
By the way, Dafydd. Thanks for posting this tune. I’ve always liked it.
1-0 to Edinburgh
You’re quite right JohnJ. Can’t win ‘em all!
I thought it from George Faux too,but I wasn’t sure.
Janine’s Shell was written for Janine Wells and was not written by Jim Sutherland.
