Andy May play is better IMHO

It's free to listen to the Andy May's spectacular version on Spotify - unfortunately Billy Pigg's version isn't also there for an easy comparison.

This is actually Guido Deiro's Variety Polka (Polka Variado).  Who knows why Vacher claimed it as his own tune.

Vacher's version has a lot more zing.

There's a general consensus in some London sessions, but the Hard Core version is very different, and all other versions I've heard are different from each other too.  So... yeah, I'd like an answer to that question too.

It’s not really a difficult piece to learn, three measures in total. Learn it slowly building up to moderate tempo. Don’t play it too fancy

Although some people only play three parts, there are actually four parts. See the earlier posts on this thread.
