Richard Adrianowicz and I have recently released our 3rd CD of chanteys and forebitters, WITH SHIPMATES ALL AROUND. We continue to mine the rich heritage of sea music, and strive to present them with a minimum of arranging. Most tracks are sung a cappella, with fiddle, tinwhistle, and guitar accompaniment on a few songs. Several tracks include a chorus of chantey singers: Walt Askew, Shay Black, David LoVine, Jim Nelson, Malcolm Rigby, and Benjamin Wachs. The chorus on Mr. Stormalong is made up of some of our singing mates in In Harmony's Way: Steve Baughman, Michael Black, Shay Black, Peter Kasin, Allan Macleod, Dick Holdstock, Doug Olsen, Riggy Rackin, Ed Silberman, and Dave Swan.

Please PM me for ordering address. $16.50 through U.S. mail, ($15 plus $1.50 postage and handling), or $15 in person. Online orders can be made through CDBaby.com.

There was a technical problem at CD Baby that is now fixed so a search on Richard Adrianowicz will show the new album.

Peter and I are still working on detailed liner notes for the album - the file will be distributed electronically until we get a new website.

Thanks, Charlie & Judy, for the kind words. Great seeing you both at Mystic!

7. Mister Stormalong is one of my favorite tracks from this recording.

Nicely recorded as well and the chorus crew does a great job, no ragged ends sticking out like so much "Irish linen."

Thank you, Charley, that's very kind, and thanks for your order, Sandra. We recommend people buy two, in case they want to listen to it twice.

Tracks 18 and 19 continue to haunt me as this CD continues to play in my van. It's a good test of any CD to see how long one will play it on the road, what tracks one only listened to once and then skips over, and which ones one wants to hears again, and again.

Track 18 is a lovely quiet song with guitar led by Richard with Peter on fiddle called "The Pretty Maid Milking Her Cow." The tune reminds me of "Over the Water to Charlie" but what the song does is capture a romantic moment.

Track 19 is a riverboat shanty led by Peter with an intricate chorus that most folks will find accessible, and hard to get out of their head once they begin to listen. I'm eager to see further notes on this one.

I also like Richard's rendition of the Great Lakes ballad "Red Iron Ore" which not many people sing. It's a great journal of one crew's experience, no disaster but graphic descriptions of what went on day to day. I do miss the "Down Derry Down" chorus between verses but fully understand why that chorus might be dropped -- so that the track didn't end up being more than 6 minutes long.

There's more tracks to review but these are the ones I've digested so far.
