MAGIC SLIPPER [1], THE. AKA and see "Dan Galbey's," "Donegal Boys," "I Wish I Never Saw You," "Maude Millar (2)," "Montua (The)," "Morrison's Reel (2)," "Mrs. Smullen's," "My Love is Fair and Handsome (1)," "Paddy McFadden's (1)." Irish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is a member of a fairly large tune family whose most prominent member, nowadays, is the reel "Maude Millar (2)," printed in O'Neill's Dance Music of Ireland (1907, No. 480) and recorded in the 78 RPM era by Sligo fiddler James "The Professor" Morrison. The late 19th century Alex Sutherland manuscript has the tune with William Bradbury Ryan's title from the Mammoth Collection, albeit mis-heard, for it was entered as "The Magic Spider."

The first strain is similar to the second strain of the American breakdown "Katy Hill (1)." See also note for "I Wish I Never Saw You" for more on this tune family.
