GUEST,Ely Help: M. of Huntley--historical & musical (7) M. of Huntley--historical & musical 21 Jul 02

I love the tune "Marquis of Huntley" that appears on Norman & Nancy Blake's album. I know that the M of H of note was Alexander Gordon, and that there are several songs about him and the Battle of Sheriffmuir. I've seen the titles "Lasses of Stewarton" and "Nae Luck About the House" mentioned as tunes (tune? the article said they were very similar) for at least one of the broadsides, but I cannot find music to them. Does anyone know of the "Marquis of Huntley" is the same as, or related to, these other tunes?
