Subject: RE: 'Our Captain Cried All Hands' Recordings
You've all just saved my sanity! (Well, what was left of it . . .)
I just dug out (have I put this LP on tape?!) Shirley Collins' version: ;ovely, but not the tune I had in my head.
Searched Martin Carthy LPs and CDs: I don't seem to own "Landfall."
And then, yes! I do have New St. George "High Tea" -- and that is definitely the female voice I was hearing in my head. Don't know why I overlooked it in my search. (Probably because I identified the voice as Maddy Prior; who knows?)
Thank you, thank you all. Now I can go ahead and finish learning the song. (Probably to the consternation of my music mates.)
