Don't forget that the Highpoint CD "Sailor's Songs and Sea Shanties" contains the entire contents of Lloyd & MacColl's mid-50's Stinson LPs, "Haul on the Bowline" and "Off to Sea Once More."

These are two of the finest shanty records ever release by folk-revival singers. They were ahead of their time in many ways.

There's also a CD of Lloyd & MacColl's "Blow Boys Blow," which is nearly as good as the first two.

Unfortunately the excellent "Thar She Blows!" and "A Sailor's Garland" have never been reissued.

Pedants will remember that Lloyd & MacColl have "improved" their material. They've done it so tastefully, though, that only pedants will care or notice.
