Subject: RE: The Advent and Development of Chanties
Hey, Gibb, this jumped out at me on your list:
"It was a standoff between Hanging Johnny and I Love the Blue Mountains of Tennessee as to which they liked best."
I've never heard of "I Love the Blue Mountains of Tennessee"! Is this the "long-lost" possible connection of some Appalachian Mountain music with sea chanties? I'd be interested to know if anybody comes up with anything on this. And how did this get to Barbados!
