Thread Name: Help: Whaling Ballads:MacColl/Lloyd, Wash. LP
Subject: Whaling Ballads:MacColl/Lloyd, Wash. LP
I'm wondering what became of the long defunct Washington label LPs. I'm looking for a Ewan MacColl/A.L. Lloyd album, "Whaling Ballads" and am wondering if it has been reissued on CD. A forum search for "Washington label" reveals that Washington had reissued Riverside's catalogue. Our local public library had a Washington label copy of it, which I used to check out whenever it was in, back in the late 70s. I didn't tape it, and it either got discontinued from the library collection, or somebody permanently checked it out. It holds a special place with me, because it was my introduction to sea music, and it remains my favorite sea music album. I have several other recordings of sea music they made together, plus A.L. Lloyd's "Leviathan," all wonderful recordings, but I cannot find this one. If anyone can tell me if "Whaling Ballads" is availabe on CD or cassette, I'd be very grateful.
