Peter Kasin and Richard Adrianowicz certainly do a spirited version of this song on their newly released CD titled With Shipmates All Around.
Not too many folks have recorded this fine traditional ballad. There is no tragic shipwreck but it's a graphic description of what life was like for this voyage of the E. C. Roberts.
