This is from the Crockett Family Mountaineer's recording from the 30's I believe, where what is played as one tune today was really two different tunes. The Crockett Family Mountaneers played a few creative medleys

I asked Ken if it was OK to try a clawhammer version of his tune, it doesn't hold up to his 3finger, but it was worth the try

From the CD of the same name by Tom Sauber, Brad Leftwich and Alice Gerrard, I don't remember their source, but it was a verison of Angeline the Baker. Learned that the tune was first recorded by Norman Edmonds and Rufus Burnett "Train on the Island" tune IS called "Angeline the Baker"
