Thread Name: A Shanty for Barry Finn
Subject: RE: A Shanty for Barry Finn
The tune is in the hands of the folk process and anyone who wants to sing the shanty, Rita. But send me your email and I'll send my concept to you on a wav file.
It's hard to compete with David's version because it's just so damned expertly done. He said he knocled it off in 20 minutes, but I think he bought studio time and had Daniel Lanois produce it. Walt's is also dandy if you want a terrific heartfelt version that's really well sung. Genie's is raucous and quite Barry-like, as is Amos' jaunty version.
