McGREEVY'S FAVORITE. AKA and see "Charlie Mulvihill's Reel (3)," "Corn Boy (The)," "East Clare Reel," "Francie Donnellan's Reel." Irish, Reel. D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Named for Chicago fiddler Johnny McGreevy (d. 1990), born to parents from County Mayo and County Galway. The liner notes to McGreevy's "Noonday Feast" LP indicate that he learned the tune from a tape of fiddlers Paddy Glackin and Séamus Connolly. The tune appears in Breathnach & Small's Ceol Rince na hÉireann vol. V (1999) under the title "Francie Donnellan's Reel," honoring an east Clare fiddler and Tulla Céilí Band member. Editor Small's endnotes, however, indicate that title was taken from a recording of the tune by Clare accordionist Conor Keane. The setting transcribed in CRÉ V was actually sourced from a 1962 tape of New York fiddler Tommy Mulvihill, son of accordionist and concertina player Charlie Mulvihill.
