Pt. 1 of Shanties from the 7 Seas

Pawn yer boots an' clothes and ship around the Horn. Along the way you'll meet the Creole gal know as "Sally Brown," "Shallow Brown," "Salambo," or "Shenandoah." You'll see places like Valaparaiso, Callao, several Rios, the Plains of Mexico, Mobile Bay (wuz yiz ever screwin' cotton there?), New Bedford, Boston, Newfoundland, Liverpool, London Town, Hong Kong, South Australia, Ilo, and Hilo. Everywhere, it seems, the judies got no combs, but haul away and make yer pay, and soon you'll be in Such-n-such Bay! Details: A quasi-systematic project of recording examples of ALL the sea chanteys (shanties) in Stan Hugill's book of the same title. The text compendium contains "over 400 shanties," and Hugill was one of the last living working chanteymen aboard merchant sailing vessels, who was responsible for keeping alive much know-how of chantey-singing after the days off sail had ended. Page numbers in [brackets] correspond to the original edition of 1961, while numbers in (parentheses) refer to the abridged Mystic Seaport edition of 1994.
