RE: Ask and Ye shall receive - Perhaps!
Frequently, a track with the required tune is for a well known dance which can not be used because the dancers will complain - "We can't dance to that - the music is putting us off." - or some such comment. Also, a track may have the required tune or a suitable alternative but the rest of the tunes (although good) are not suitable for the dance. I frequently have this problem when trying to recommend 'suitable recorded music' for my dances.

I have some very good recordings of Sets of Reels / Jigs etc, but the first thing I do when selecting CDs is to see if I have a recording for the dance (even if it hasn't actually got a named tune!). So I finish up using what might be an inferior recording, just because someone bothered to make a recording for a particular dance. I suppose I could go through all my dances to see if any of them have recommended tunes, and then check to see if that was the tune used on a particular recording - but I won't! I will continue to search my CD database to see if the dance has a recording, and use it if there is one.
