Subject: RE: Marais and Miranda Documentary
Ron, you may be correct about the Alabama, although she was lurking off the coast of South Africa during part of her cruise and I do remember an extended discussion of how ironic it was that the non-white stevadores were singing about her. Marais did change some of the original words which I believe had more to do with the Alabama coming in to liberate the oppressed. You may spur me on to dig up my old record.
