Can anyone supply individual titles for the "Three Tunes" track on the Spiers & Boden "Vagabonds" album? I've Googled and also searched the S&B Forum to no avail.

The first of the three I think I recognise as also being on Ashley Hutchings & Co's "Rattlebone and Ploughjack", but as I've only got a vinyl copy of that and no record deck, I'm a bit stuck...

Look on John Chambers's Tunefinder, simply for "Three Tunes".

That *is* the name. It's a common Irish set.

I am not familiar with Spiers & Boden. However, if Jack Campin is correct that what you are looking for is "The Three Tunes" used for a specific Irish ceili dance, the individual titles are "Haste to the Wedding", "Leslie's Hornpipe", and "The German Beau".

Thanks for the suggestions, but that ain't it. The Tunefinder does indeed reveal that the first tune of the Irish set you mention is "Haste to the Wedding", which, coincidentally is on another Hutchings album (Compleat Dancing Master).

The first tune on the Spiers & Boden set is (I believe) used for a Welsh Border Morris dance.

According to the sleeve notes, the first is Dennis Crowther's No 3 (aka Beatrice Hill's Three Handed Reel), the second is by Jon Boden and "may be called The Pound of Flesh, but maybe not".

The third is a Hungarian tune which I'm not even going to attempt to spell!

They're not Irish.

Thanks, Howard! One of the disadvantages of downloading mp3 albums is that you miss out on the sleeve notes...
