First recorded as 'Traditional Reel' on Fine Thank You Very Much, a CD by Ashley MacIsaac this tune circulated for a few years before the composer was verified. Published in the 1st edition of Brenda Stubbert's 2nd Collection as Visits with Arthur Muise (reflecting Brenda's source) that title will be corrected in the next press run. More recently, Brenda recorded the tune, with its correct title, on her 2008 CD titled Endless Memories.
