4. Jenny In Her Shift/Tom Jones
5. Hi! Tequila Tango/High Tea Tango
6. The Fretful Porcupine

I've been informed that this is currently available as the second (semi-secret) bonus CD of The Albion Dance Band: Dancing Days Are Here Again (Talking Elephant TECD106).

thank you *very much* for this. your copy is in much better shape than mine is.

have you ever heard the 'tanzteufel' album by the german folk band lilenthal? it came out about the same time as 'shuffle off' and approaches german folk tunes in a way similar to the approach of the albion dance band. even the covers are similar, although i'm almost certain that's a coincidence.
