Taking the shanties in turn...

A Hundred Years Ago.

Lead by Lloyd.
Compares well with Terry's (1926) presentation.
The line "I promised her a golden ring/ she promised me that little thing" might be one of Lloyd's lines that Hugill didn't care for.

Billy Riley
Lead by Lloyd.
Seems based in C Fox Smith, lyrics-wise, but Lloyd's melody doesn't appear in print. (MacColl later did a rendition after Terry's collection of John Short.)
