Al Hopkins and His Buckle Busters recorded Boatin’ Up Sandy in New York City on May 14th, 1927. It was paired with Bug in the Taters, and released as Brunswick #182.

The form is a standard AABB fiddle tune with two four-bar strains. The ‘A’ strain has some nice syncopations, including a tie across the bar line between the first and second measures.
