A couple more proper 32-bar reels, Happy Cavalier and Three Scamping Rogues, which I usually play for the dance Lucky Seven.

(A bit too much pace for this dance - I would only work up to this frenetic speed if the dancers are up for it.  We would usually start much more slowly, particularly the first B part till they get the hang of the multi-tasking hands around bit while simultaneously counting to 7.)

Das-Man has always already taken the apprehension of these possibilities-of-being away from Dasein.

Time was running out so I thought of this pairing. The notes are on youtube
Anyway here it is, a Thaxted Country Dance Band set, Jack Filby's & Nagging Bitch (or Cow caller etc) known as the Sugarbeet set and played as polka, reel, barndance Schottische or hornpipe, depending on the dance. The band doesn't play for the Sugarbeet festival anymore so the dances aren't done, it got so popular they now book national bands, next year it's The Watch with Dan Quinn.

What we call The Rakes set as it's nicked from them. Captain McGuire, Babes in the Wood and the back to front All the Way to Galway is Jimmy Power's. We use them for the Bucksaw Reel.http://youtu.be/-iVXMLIte4w

A quick recording.

Two polkas. The first I got from Pete Coe at Melodeons at Witney and the other from somewhere else lost in the mists of time.

Very nice playing Lester, and the Podpea sounds lovely.  ;)

Wait a minute, does that mean that Cooley's Reel is a 32 bar reel?  Or is it a 16 bar reel where you repeat both sections?  Have I been looking for something twice as long as I needed to or can I just not count?

Depends how you're counting bars I suppose. I would expect a 32 bar tune to have an 8 bar A repeated and an 8 bar B repeated. Add an 8 bar C repeated and you have a 48 bar tune. Something like Rusty Gulley only has 4 bars each in the A & B - both repeated - so I reckon that's a 16 bar tune.

I'm probably wrong though, that happens a lot!  >:E

Rough as ever but looks like will be a while before I get my hands on the organetto again so:

http://soundcloud.com/i-k-3/polkadelpollino

Polka del Pollino, adapted from the recording by Castrese Bevilacqua ("King of the Left Handed Organetto") but without the jump-up drum machine programming or birdsong effects.  Played on a right handed organetto.  As far as I know the Pollino is a range of mountains and nothing to do with chickens.
