    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?

    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.

    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
