Any one know it, and know where I can hear a recording? I am trying to learn it with music I have, but don't think I'm getting the feel for it.
Thanks.

It's an elaboration of a more familiar 9/8 jig the name of which I forget. Scottish 9/8 jigs tend to all blur together in my head - Hey Ca Thro? Rattlin Roarin Willie? something in that family but I think there's a closer one. Gore's tune index shows it as unique, which has to be wrong.

The first strain is more or less the same as "Colonel" (or "The Collonel") in David Young's 1740 collection:
