Subject: RE: Farewell Shanty - When was it written?

Thanks for the kind words. As for your last line of questions, the answer is no, no, no and "My pleasure". I've moved down to New Orleans where its considered impolite to sing on choruses let alone sing. As a group, the Boarding Party has drifted far from its performing and recording shore. There is a thrid album in a can somewhere well beyond my reach.

I should be thanking you and others for whom the Boarding Party, in its day and its way, helped keep the music alive. That's not a bad epitaph when you think of it - "They helped keep the music alive"

Fair winds, KC
