Subject: RE: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
My grandfather worked under sail and picked up a few shanties which he used to sing around the house.
I played him a recording of Stan once, which he thought very odd - but I didn't have the nouse to take him up on it at the time - horses for courses I suppose.
I was very saddened to read Hugill's review of the Ben Bright monograph (I think in Dance and Song).
He remembered Bright and described Joe Hill's I.W.W. (Industrial Workers of the World) as the "I wont workers" - again, horses for courses.
