Subject: RE: Lloyd & MacColl's Sea Song LPs
Google lists these couple sources with reviews of The Singing Sailor as 1954, but I don't believe it. Must be later dater issues contained within the volume. Anyway,

Gramophone (snippet view)

An ad for the album, touting Lloyd as the Shantyman in Moby Dick

Not helpful, but interesting.

Also of interest is this little review might be of interest, which compares the style of Thar She Blows to similar albums by Burl Ives, Paul Clayton, and the Almanac Singers. From Keystone Folklore Quarterly [Bucknell University], Spring 1958.
