Note: Discussion of the spinning song " 'S Tus' A' Chuibeheal." Lomax asks Johnston for a translation, which he offers. Johnston described the song as "A lady singing a love song to her wheel, you might say."
About the session: Reminiscences, stories, songs and mouth music by Calum Johnston, his sister Annie Johnston, and Flora MacNeil. The box of T3427 was given the date September 20, 1950, and the location of Glasgow, but there is no further information anywhere that confirms Lomax's presence in Glasgow on that date with the Johnstons. All evidence suggests that the recordings on that tape (probably a later edit) were made during the July 1951 session, and have thus been included here.
