maldenny Lyr Req: Stan Hugill's Unpublished Shanties (22) RE: Lyr Req: Stan Hugill's Unpublished Shanties 11 Oct 04


Talking about Stan Hugill, I've got around a dozen copies of the old Spinners magazine called, appropriately enough, "Spin". Stan Hugil wrote an article each month on sea shanties, and not all of the shanties in Spin made it to his book "Shanties of the Seven Seas". I'm looking at one right now called 'Strike the Bell', a pump shanty. (It might be in under a different name I suppose, it's a long while since I read the book through. A collection of his writings for "Spin" would make an invaluable resource - there's much more description and sketches with each article.
