Subject: RE: Lloyd & MacColl's Sea Song LPs
Thanks, Lighter.

I will process all that info later! -- And I will, when I get around to organizing all these folks' shanties (there are only 27-ish) in a list, by date of recording.

I have scene that very helpful site with the albums, though it helps, too, to double check their info.

At some point I determined that _The Singing Sailor_ was 1955. I don't remember how; I don't own the original album. Perhaps it was that I just found the copyright on the songs given as 1955, which in this case is relevant, too. In fact, I think it was because I was looking into "Blood Red Roses" and found that, though Moby-Dick wasn't released until 1956, Lloyd had recorded the song prior to its release.
