    Can anyone help me here? I have the Barry Priddey booklet "Twelvesome 
    Reel". In it, there is a dance called "The Laggan Burn". 
    Unfortunately, my copy of the book has a blank page 8 (where "The Laggan 
    Burn" should be). Bars 25-32 appear at the top of page 9.
    Does anyone have a page 8 they could scan in and send to me (privately, of 
    course)? I would really appreciate it.
    Page 5 is also blank, but I think that may be intentional. (??)
    (Aside to Alan: DanceData seems to have this dance listed as "Laggan 
    Falls". Not sure why.)
    Thank you.

    Thank you to Martina for a scan of both pages that were missing from my 
    copy of the booklet.
    Also, Alan, don't change anything in DanceData. The page 8 version of the 
    dance says "The Laggan Falls", despite the Table of Contents saying "The 
    Laggan Burn".
    Anyone know how that change happened?

    The correct original tune used is called 'The Laggan Burn'. I think this is
    why Barry got a little mistake when typing up his book.

    Ahhh. That makes sense. Thanks, George.
