Subject: RE: Ewan McColl song for documentary?
The Shellback Song was written not to be sung in its entirely in the 1970 BBC film `Before the mast, the film opened with a picture of the new Concord taking off and cut back to the packet ship Dreadnought. It is a shame it has never been put on either DVD or Video. It was published in its complete form in th New City Songster during the 1970`s
