Indeed... both Blow Boys Blow and Leviathan by MacColl & LLoyd were not only great albums, but helped start new interest in sea music.

Jerry Garcia went so far as to cite both as his favorite albums - in the Grateful Dawg documentary. He sang Angeline on the show... I suspect because they wanted to get on television & past the censors. LOL

Funny... my mom had no problems with me singing all those songs, even though I was only 15 when we got the album. But heaven forbid I should use the word "ain't" or anything stronger than dang.... go figure.
