Subject: 'Civil War Naval Songs' from Folkways
From: Desert Dancer

Got a mention and a clip on NPR this morning:

Civil War Naval Songs
Dan Milner, David Coffin, Jeff Davis SFW40189
Smithsonian Folkways 2011

These thirteen authentic maritime songs from the era of the American Civil War (1861-65) intone the story of war on the water. They were sounds of the cramped quarters of Union and Confederate fighting ships as well as merchant craft that sailed in constant peril, of bustling taverns and variety theaters where sailors and citizens alike recharged their patriotic spirit, and of the parlors of homes where loved ones waited in fear and longing. Drawn from Northern, Southern, and British sources, they are performed by an all-star crew of singers and musicians. 52 Minutes, 36-Page booklet, extensive notes and historic images.

Tracks:
The Fight of the Hatteras and Alabama
The Jamestown Homeward Bound
Farragut's Ball
The Florida's Cruise
The Old Virginia Lowlands, Low
The Blockade Runner
The Bold Privateer
A Yankee Man-of-War
The Sailor's Grave
The Brooklyn, Sloop-of-War
The Alabama
The Fate of the Pirate Alabama
The Monitor & Merrimac

Looks good.

But no "Cumberland's Crew"?

No "Cumberland and the Merrimac"?

Tsk.
