Re Richard's message
Points 1,2,3,4,5.. yes

That says it all, really

Oh, one point which occurrs is; when using a recorded tune for a dance
other than the intended one. Some naturally require a different tempo.

My, that takes one back ......... when close to the correct
speed it was sometimes difficult not to turn one's head to compensate.

Something like the Jimmy Shand mould? :~)
