and everyone will finish up in the right direction for the advance & retire.

I quite agree, it's a more satisfactory variant than the one printed on bk 1.
And I agree, it's repetitive, tiring, etc.
But ... it has one of the best tunes I know!

Since living in Grenoble, I have had lots of mails and phone calls from
people (French arriving back here, or Scottish arriving for a stay) asking
where they can find the wonderful atmosphere of Scottish dancing in France.
Invariably, it turns out they have been ceilidh dancing in Scotland, not
SCDing.
