Thread Name: Origins: Admiral Benbow
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Admiral Benbow (from June Tabor)
In addition to the sources mentioned above, the Sons of the Buccaneer's CD of the same name, contains Benbow, sung (very well) by Jim Nelson in an up-beat manner. The SOB's were a local (SF Bay Area) group, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were not well known elsewhere, even though they deserved to be. I think they've disbanded, although the individual members continue to be active locally. Jim Nelson often shows up at the Starry Plow's Irish jam on Sunday nights. If anyone wants to hear his version (and its well worth hearing) I bet he'd be happy to comply.
