Tip-Top Hornpipe / Primrose Polka

[trad. arr. Brinsford, Carthy, Evans, Kirkpatrick, Williams]

These tunes were played by Brass Monkey on their eponymous 1983 debut album Brass Monkey. This LP was re-released in 1993 as the first half of the CD The Complete Brass Monkey.

The Brass Monkey sleeve notes said:

Learned by John Kirkpatrick in his formative years at the knee of Bob Rundle, exponent of the melodeon, fiddle, whistle and Northumbrian pipes—now resident in Cornwall.
