Transcription based on Popcorn Behavior, "Strangest Dream." Don’t have the liner notes to hand, but this is possibly penned by them…

Not sure if this is in fact a reel — the rhythm isn’t conventional. Anybody confirm/deny?

I can’t quite make my reel steps fit to it……..but that still doesn’t necarsarily mean that it’s not a reel (yes my spelling is appaling, sorry).

Re: Sue’s Dream

This tune has New England Contra Dance written all over it, which accounts for the kind of jabbing rhythm to it, which is distinct from most Irish reels. I would probably treat the rests as a points of emphasis, where you can really lay into a double stop or roll to emphasis a balance and swing.
