Hi Lizardson; I´m sure Mike Heron´s concert at Tokyo 2006 December 1 was recorded. Could you help me to find it?

Wow! I remember buying this music book so many years ago and it came with this vinyl recording on a very thin plastic sheet that was nearly unplayable. Thanks for making this available at last.

Hello!

Seeing some obviously cut titles, I've surfed through the web to find out the real names for some of the tunes on this record. For me that was a kind of surfing sport combined with an exetcise in fast notation. But it came upon my mind that the result might be interested for those who have interest in such specific audiorecordings. So. let me share it with you:

Track 4 is "Jenny Nettles" (yes, it is), but the title of the second tune is misspelled: "Muileann Dubh" (Irish), "Mullin Dhu" (probably Breton). It stands for "the black mill", as translated and explained here: http://chrsouchon.free.fr/mulindu.htm). The first version of ABC notation of the two mentioned here:
http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/MT_MUI.htm
- sounds appropriate, and some people play the tune exactly this way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hx_JQfWLZs)

Items 1 and 3 still discourage me. They, too. look very much like victims of a misprint. Now I've no psychical power for such a brainstorm as another two ABC searches, maybe the next time.

The second tune on the 7th track is "Go [Back] to Berwick, Billy (or Johnny)", or just "Berwick Billy":

Going further, the 10th track includes also a slip jig "Dever the Dancer" (the title also varies, the spelling mentioned above is relatively frequent over the internet):

Also, "The Fine Companion" and "Rover Reformed" on the 2nd track really are what they are.

With gratitude and respect,
a constant visitor (just one of so many).
