Just for the record, I was referring to a previous posting by Colin Ross, in 
which he wrote:

"It has already attracted criticism from one of our pipers who is 
'deeply disappointed' that the CD is not with the book as originally 
planned and who thinks that it will do real damage to what is 
essentially an oral tradition. He quotes the late Tom Anderson of 
Shetland who 'rightly' said 'Never try to learn a tune you don't 
already know'."
