Thread Name: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
Subject: RE: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
If "old-time sailors" were anything like the modern kind, they had a "high regard" for any available women, regardless of geography.

Lloyd presumably got the information about Valparaiso from singing "The Gallant Frigate Amphitrite" on "The Penguin Book of English Folksongs" (1961).
