Contact the DigiTrad's own Dick Greenhaus, at Camsco Music, for starters.

The wear and tear of time and lending things to people has reduced my McPeake recordings to nearly zero. I have a great fondness for the "Slieve Gallon Braes" and "Verdant Braes of Skreen" type of thing. Can anyone advise on what CD reissues might currently be available?

Try Gracenote CDDB

It's usualy the best starting point for that sort of query.

Speaking of the McPeakes, I've been thirsting for the tune (set) list from a CD produced by the McPeake School. It has the ubiquitous title 'The Best of Irish Traditional Music' and the track titles include...

1. Merry Blacksmith                           
2. Castle of Dromore                           
3. Queen of the Rushes                           
4. Tripping up the Stairs                           
5. Southwind                           
6. Maid Behind the Bar                           
7. Quaker                           
8. Kesh Jig                           
9. Heoge Row                           
10. Enchanted Lady                           
11. Ships in Full Sail                           
12. Down the Broom

It's distributed in Canada by St. Clair Records. I sent a message to the School requesting the tune list, but I never received a reply.
