I never get tired of old waltzes. I learned the first one from Rejean Simard, who taught it at La Grande Rencontre in Montreal in 2004. Monsieur Simard is from Chutes-aux-Outardes or Sept-Iles, I believe, in any case way up in the North. He builds one-row accordions and plays in a solid, forceful style. Several years ago I played this tune for Pete Sutherland, who said, "Oh, yeah, that's the 'Old Timer's Waltz.'"
The second waltz is "Valse des bébés," which was recorded by Alfred Montmarquette. I got my version from Denis Pepin.
