BACK IN '89. Old-time, Breakdown. A Major. Standard tuning. AA'BB'. Beisswenger & McCann (2008) identify this as a probable member of a tune family that includes "Village Hornpipe," "Sweet Ellen/Ellum ," "Last of Callahan" and "Old Dubuque," albeit they are played in the key of 'D'. They also believe that source Lymon Enloe did not have a name for the tune, but rather it was named by a radio announcer named "Captain Jack" Hiney of WOS in the 1930's.
Source for notated version: Missouri fiddler Lymon Enloe (1906-1997), who had the tune either from his father, or his Uncle "Pink" Enloe [Beisswenger & McCann].
Printed Sources: Beisswenger & McCann (Ozarks Fiddle Music), 2008; pg. 27.
Recorded sources: County CD-2707, Lymon Enloe - "Fiddle Tunes I Recall" (originally recorded 1973).
