Explanatory liner notes by record label ANTI-:

David Thomas - vocal, melodeon; Kate St. John - sax; Rory McFarlane - bass; Warren Ellis - strings; Leo Abrahams - guitar; Andy Newmark - drums; Martyn Barker - percussion
Recorded in London at Sanctuary / Town House Studios - Engineered by Tim Roe, assisted by Tom Hough
This stamp-and-go chantey is one of the best known and also quite old. A printed version from the 1830's differs little from the modern one.
