Also, CDSS has a CD/book morris tutorial by Dave Mallinson called Mally's Cotswold Morris. He plays a button accordion on the CD, but as Lester said, they sound really similar.
I got a copy for Christmas and it has helped me out a lot.

There are, however, some fine recordings of Tom Kruskal playing Morris tunes on Anglo concertina with Jim Morrison (fiddle) and others from:
Cottey Light Industries
Rt. 2, Box 447
Charlottesville, VA 22901
Round Pond Relics, Cottey Light Industries CLI-901, LP only (1980)
Over the Water, Cottey Light Industries CLI-903 (1993)
The 2nd is available from many sources. The first may be hard to find.

What side do you dance and play for Rhomylly?

If you download 'Amazing Slowdowner' then you can vary the CD speed for playing along, if you're a by-ear person (I'm by-ear and reader). Also, it will give you a virtual "someone" to practice with

There's plenty there for a Morris enthusiast to get his teeth into. You should be able to find a copy using GOOGLE or by going to www.johnkirkpatrick.co.uk.
I was informed by Mr K's wife that Sheepskins 2 is in the offing. I for one, will be getting a copy.

I'd echo what Chris has said. I could never tire of that medley of the different flavours of Constant Billy (Constant Billies? ) at the end of the record.
I've just checked Topic Records web site, and John Kirkpatrick's truly wonderful recording Plain Capers is still available.
