    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.
       
      Regards,

      Actually, it gets a bit more complicated than that.
    
    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.
