Thread Name: 'Our Captain Cried All Hands' Recordings
Subject: 'Our Captain Cried All Hands' Recordings
I've been going crazy (I know, I know -- I shouldn't make it sound like an all day trip) since spring trying to find a recording of "Our Captain Cried All Hands." The DT gave me the words, but not who recorded it. I "hear" a female voice -- and I can't locate a recording in my collection.
I recently had the opportunity to ask Joyce and Danny McLeod and Louis Killen about it. Joyce was able to sing the (Anglican?) hymn that furnished the tune (if anyone could give me more info, I'd be appreciate it) and Louis sang a few more "Blacksmith" variants, but no one seems to remember who recorded it.
