LIZA JANE [7]. American, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The source for this version of "Liza Jane", which is hardly recognizable as a member of the original "Liza Jane" tune family, is fiddler Romie Aiken, of south Person County, North Carolina (north of Durham, in the central part of the state). Aiken was recorded in the field by folklorist Alan Jabbour in 1966 for the Library of Congress, and later himself recorded Aiken's version on his 1981 LP "Sandy's Fancy" (one of two "Liza Jane" tunes on the album).
