This is from the same 78rpm record as the recording of Liberty used for the dance
Taking Liberties. This track for Long Odds has been
restored, but has not been extended; the original from a 12″ 78rpm
record has the dance repeated nine times! However, it has been slowed down from 133bpm to 124bpm, without changing
Odds, Early One Morning (6x32 bars) at 120bpm,

It is quite remarkable how good is the folk dance music produced by Joan Winsor playing solo on a piano.
Incidentally, I have access to three cassettes of Joan Winsor playing solo with a total of 84 tracks. The cassettes are
numbered 1, 2 and 4. Does anybody have cassette number 3? See Links & contacts page if
you can help.
