    My heartfelt thanks to all who made such valuable suggestions.
    
    I did make an attempt at using the trial versions of the programs Sound 
    Forge and Audition. However, I have to confess that I could make neither 
    head nor tail of these programs. Despite studying the help information 
    (a difficult thing to admit for a software engineer) I could not for the 
    life of me figure out how to use these.
    
    On the other hand, the genuinely free software Audacity was so simple to 
    use it almost did it for me.
    
    So. AT LAST I have a recording for Fife Ness on CD.
    
    Again. Many thanks to all who replied.

    	I can see that all that effort will be worth it to put Fife Ness 
    on CD.  Great dance!
     Is yours the Bobby Crowe band only or the one with Ron Gonella?  
    I'm not too happy with the latter so that is one set of tunes which 
    could bear with an update.

    I have the Bobby Crowe one. Dancedata knows nothing about any Ron 
    Gonella recording. Do tell me more!
    
    I see that Muriel has a version as well on her Memories of Fife album. 
    Don't yet have that though.

    There may be some confusion here as the »A Fife Fairing« CD contains tracks by 
    Bobby Crowe as well as Ron Gonella. That CD is apparently pieced together 
    mostly from the record for the 1982 booklet (by R.G.) and one by Bobby Crowe 
    containing a mixed bunch of dances including ones from the 1965 and 1978 
    booklets (the second of which would include Fife Ness). The liner notes for 
    the CD do not deign to mention which track is played by which band.

    More confusion indeed.
    
    My recording comes from the album "Music for ten Scottish Country 
    dances" by Bobby Crowe.
    
    I have exactly this track noted as being present on the Fife Fairing 
    album as well. Unfortunately, this was done so long ago that I can no 
    longer provide evidence for the correctness of this. (Possibly because 
    of the tune composition).
    
    This would mean that the two tracks which Ron mentioned are in fact the 
    same one. Ron?
