Thanks. I have merged those two entries and updated recordings 9553, 10669 & 10686, also dance 4625, to reference tune 1503.

In checking this I see that https://tunearch.org/wiki/Rachel_Rae lists a large number of different names for this tune. SCDDB has a separate entry for one of them: “The Moving Bog” (https://my.strathspey.org/dd/tune/3573/). Should that be merged with tune 1503 as well? Or are there other Moving Bogs?

I don’t have “Merrie Melodies, 4th Collection”, but I did listen to book 25 of the RSCDS, and the recording of “Miss Dumbreck” containing “The Moving Bog” as second tune. I do think it is the same as Rachel Rae, as in they are two very different variants of the same traditional tune. I suppose it does make sense to merge them.
