Does anyone know if Galaads were available in keys other than GC?

I've been working on my version of this East Coast classic.

I hope folks like it - played on a Koch Cf, it uses what I hope are some cute minor 7ths...

( sigh.... 4 decades ago.....  ::) )
I knew Old Swan and Flowers, as we always seemed to be at the same festivals together, and became good friends, but I never encountered New Victory Band except by reputation.
After listening today, I understand why they make up the third pillar of the Trinity of lp's.
Good stuff tis....

Even though the band I'm a member of plays only a few gigs, I'm convinced we can't get away with no PLI insurance any longer. Just takes one accident. And I'm certainly not convinced my EFDSS insurance will cover me when I call the occasional dance.

How often do people sue, I wonder.
Probably very rarely indeed.

You're right, Steve; it just seems not to be in the Cypriot psyche.  One of Cyprus's most endearing traits is also one of its most infuriating - in so many ways it's still the 1950s...........

I should have recorded Mrs Grace Bowie on my Pokerwork - I must have driven my housemates mad by constant repetitions of the LP when I learned all the tunes by ear, on my first box. I even remember playing the tunes at the University Folk Club - forty years ago. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be !

I would count New Victory Band along with Old Swan and Flowers and Frolics as my top three groups which made me love traditional dance music all those years ago.

I cannot imagine that bankrupting someone who has nothing, or very little, to start with would be very enticing to our legal friends, after all; what would be in it for them?

Probably very rarely indeed. But you only want one person to do so, just once, and you could be stung for thousands of pounds in damages, not to mention legal costs. Unless you have sufficient personal funds to cover such an eventuality, that's what insurance is for.

True, but I was thinking specifically of Cyprus. I wondered if the lack of insurance meant that the rewards from litigation are less certain so people don't bother so much. It used to be much rarer here, not that long ago.

I'm not suggesting we don't insure, just reflecting on the ambulance chasing culture.
