It sure is a challenge dancing The Reel of Mey to Jimmy Shand! In Book 22 it is labelled quite clearly Slow 6/8, and while the recent RSCDS recording has a pace of 36.2, Jimmy Shand's is 31.6. We practiced the dance to Jimmy Shand but danced it at the monthly Social to one of the slower recordings, to our great relief.

while I
like the Society recording for "Reel of Mey", it is nowhere near the challenge it
used to be when dancing it to Jimmy Shand.
