From a number of years ago I remember a son which I thought was "Jojoloza" which the Spinners sang.    I also remember the Teesside Fettlers singing it.
Cliff Hall sang the "Jojoloza" part and it segued (not a bad word for a Teesside lad) into a shanty.
The problem is I can't remember what the shanty was.
Any clues out there.

Give your question a few days to bubble around, PaulO. Someone will see and and help. Just refresh the thread if necessary to keep it from disappearing.

PaulO was looking for the song that followed Shosholoza:

"Cliff Hall sang the "Jojoloza" part and it segued (not a bad word for a Teesside lad) into a shanty.
The problem is I can't remember what the shanty was."

It may be Esikibo River, a quick search of the net doesn't reveal any lyrics but plenty of renditions on youtube.

Because of your thread I've gone looking for information about Cliff Hall and The Spinners, about whom I know very little.

I found several interesting links, and discovered that Mr. Hall shares a birthplace with my dad. Here's one link Cliff Hall & The Spinners
And another, here Cliff Hall's obit

I'll look for possible answers (in addition to Commander Crabbe's suggestion) when I have more time. I'll also check our Spinners LPs in case we have it.

Thanks for the interesting question.
