If I had not been in such a hurry (I should have been doing something else) I might have remembered this was the Bledington tune collected by the Travelling Morris. I do remember seeing Southdown Morris dance to this at Towersey maybe 25 years ago (maybe more). It was played by a teenage member of the side who played it exactly as Roger Watson played it on the record. I wonder what happened to him?

That teenage player was me😊.

 I had posted a version of the tune a while back

Thank you Steve.
I’d admit it took a few takes to get it right. Hadn’t played it in years and I was trying to convert it over to a 3 row in a different key as the old D/G was in bits at the time.

On paper it should be easy shouldn’t it  ::)

I'm playing all the wrong notes but not necessarily in the wrong order.

Older, Fatter, Wiser (maybe). I remember loving the fact Roger lent me his box during the filming
