GUEST,Roberto CD Req:Best CD's of Sea Shantys (31) RE: CD Req:Best CD's of Sea Shantys 27 Mar 00


Two CD that in my opinion are among the best have already been named, "Blow,Boys,Blow", by Ewan MacColl & A.L.Lloyd, and the Saydisc anthology "SEa songs and shanteys from the last days of sail". I would add the Topic anthology, "Blow the man down", and the CD by A.L.Lloyd about the whaling trade, "Leviathan". The other Topic anthologies about sea songs, "Round Cape Horn" and the two in the collection "The Voice of the People" ("We've received orders for to sail" and "Our ship shall sail the ocean") are not about shanteys, but they are very interesting too.
