Thread Name: Songbooks: A Basic Folk Library
Subject: RE: Basic Folk Library PermaThread™
The Oxford Book of Sea Songs (chosen and edited by Roy Palmer, Oxford University Press, 1986). This is a very nice collection of songs of the sea. The annotations are brief, but very helpful. The book was out of print, but it was reissued and expanded in August, 2001, as "BOXING THE COMPASS" Sea Songs & Shanties Edited by Roy Palmer.
