I'm surprised. I thought everybody had a copy of the Fiddler's Fakebook...

Nope. Never got around to it. You're at least the third person who has commented on my fakebook deficiency.

I don't have one either.

While the tunes in "Fiddler's Fakebook" and Stacy Phillip's "Traditional American Fiddle Tunes" all have recorded sources that one can find, there are a few books for which there are no, or unavailable recorded sources. These still have some good tunes, but one has to create a setting that works.
Samuel Bayard's two books - "Hill Country Tunes" and "Dance to the Fiddle, March to the Fife"
Marion Thede's "The Fiddle Book"
Ira Ford's "Traditional Music of America"
Many of the tunes in Jeff Titon's "Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes"
RP Christeson's "The Old-Time Fiddler's Repertory" Vols. 1 & 2
and another couple of newer ones for which one can find some recorded versions:
Harrison & Burgess' "Dear Old Illinois" (there 3 CDs that can be purchased separately; I don't know if they have all the tunes that are in the book)
"Kenny Hall's Music Book"
