You're right Penn, I updated my post.
So far as the origin of the tune goes, Mike nailed it;view=1up;seq=1

Maybe you could add your version to the TOTM Don?

Yes Greg that’s what I remembered seeing. Before the internet it wouldn’t have been easy to verify the origin of a tune. But... who knows anyway? Maybe someone will find some more “proof” at a later date?
Nice tune and Squeezy and Pete make a great job of it.

I’m not usually one for an argument (particularly with Mr Squeezy) and i’m very happy to be shot down in flames for being wrong but the third Cuckoo tune sounds very much like Cuckoos Nest longborough on the Morris Ring site
You're quite right; I'd forgotten the Longborough tune was a major version. You wouldn't think I'd been a Morris musician for 47 years, would you? Mind you, it is very similar to Ilmington..... (and in my own defence, it's  probably 25 or 30 years since I've had to play any Longborough!)

So, as far as I can tell, still after everything, no one has posted the exact URL with a time index; - shortly before Peter starts playing his intro part for Paddy Carey's.

In any case, thank you very much Malcolm for a link to the video in question - I had no idea if was an hour long recording of them performing, uploaded by the festival itself. I shall watch it with some interest at a later time.
