I have friend who is trying to locate a recording by Jim Cameron of Scottish Traditional Dances, an LP on the Ace of Clubs label. Does anyone on the list have ideas and suggestions? Sylvia Miskoe Concord NH USA

If you log into this site http://www.musicinscotland.com/acatalog/index.html and type "Jim Cameron" into the "search words" section and check the dot below is before the word "all" then hit enter you will see a list of 67 results. Result no 5 (plus others) give the name Jim Cameron. clicking on Jim's name will bring up details of all his recordings on CD, including LP's remastered. You may find what you are looking for there as seven are listed. Alasdair Graham, Dumbarton, Scotland.

I believe the record may be ACLM 1081 COME SCOTTISH DANCING Folk Dances of Scotland. Jim Cameron's Scottish Dance Band Brouns Reel La Russe Strip the Willow Scottish Reform Isle of Skye Waltz Country Dance Pride of Erin Glasgow Highlanders Dundee Reel Hamilton House All are transfers from 78 rpm records and are not full dances - Brouns reel is 5x32 + 8bars for example. All are remastered on Ross Records CD CDGR174 Jim Cameron's Scottish Dance Band Vol 1(www.rossrecords.com) together with 10 other tracks ex 78 records. Ross have also issued Vol 2 & 3 (CDGR175 and CDGR185) with another 36 tracks from Jim Cameron. I have also seen a 10" LP -not Ace of Clubs I think - with the Lancers, Gay Gordons, Broun's Reel 10x32 and the Eightsome. I do not have further details of this one. Regards Eddy West
