Thanks Adrian, registered with Yahoo, joined the tradtunes forum and could then download the 2 pdf's with theses tunes. I was aware they were available here:-

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rja14/musicfil ... s/riddell/

where the pages had to be downloaded individually.

Ross's music page

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rja14/music/index.html

has other interesting lists which some might find useful.

Eric.

An interesting feature of Riddell's Scotch Galwegian and Border Tunes is the number of tunes which he calls 'West Border' tunes which are different versions of Peacock's tunes - not necessarily better, but another slant, giving a broader picture of the repertoire at the same period. I find the collection immensely useful, to be ranked alongside Dixon, Peacock and Bewick.
