GUEST,Adolfo Origins: Shoals of Herring (MacColl) (121* d) RE: shoals of herring 13 Dec 02

There's a vhs version of the song included in the BBC 'Bringing it all back home' documentary about Irish music influence on the USA. There it's the Clancy Brothers singing.
By the way, one of the brothers mentions the fact that the line 'wide and wasteful ocean' was taken from Shakespeare's Henry V.
