Subject: The New Book of Pirate Songs
From: dick greenhaus
Date: 24 Mar 12 - 10:41 PM

Stuart Frank's New Book of Pirate Songs is the latest publication from CAMSCO Music/ Loomis House Press. It's revised and expanded (162 pages s. 124 pages; 84 songs vs. 62 songs) from the 1998 Book of Pirate Songs..Both words and scores are included.. It's available for ordering now, from CAMSCO Music. ($19.95 //$29.95 softcover/hardcover, with a lead time of about 1 week. Shipping is local, as we print in both the US and the UK.
In my somewhat biased opinion, it's a fine collection of songs of maritime miscreants, with notes and commentary up to Dr. Frank's usual high standards for both scholarship and readability.
We also publish Frank's masterful collection of songs culled from Whalemen's journals Jolly Sailors Bold. ($40/$50(US) softcover/hardcover) Originally released in 2010, the current release (it's awkward to refer to a second printing when you're dealing with print-on-demand) has fixed some omitted references and cleared up some typos present in the first printing. I mention it again now because we're just getting comments from reviewers--a process that takes an inordinately long time when you're dealing with scholarly books---and I'd like to quote a couple here:




Stuart Frank's massive and entertaining compendium Jolly Sailors Bold offers afresh and essential contribution to the study of maritime musical traditions.This is undoubtedly the most significant contribution to the study of maritime music to appear in years. Frank's sparkling storytellingcombined with a wealth of enriching primary source materials locate these songs in the lives of nineteenth century sailors and thus brings to life the seagoing musicalworld of the great age of sail --- a world that folklorists only later began to document as steam vanquished commercial sail. So after giving the whole book a look-through and spending a few minutes with the introduction, pour yourself an appropriate beverage, choose one of the songs and settle in for a spell getting to know it and the people, places and stories in its history. Even if you never actually sing the song, you will be well rewarded for your time.



RobertYoung Walser

FolkMusic Journal





Stuart M. Frank is the world's expert on American sailors'songs and ballads, and Jolly Sailors Bold is his long-awaited masterpiece. What Hugill, Colcord, Doerflinger, and others did for the oral tradition, Frank has now done for the handwritten song texts preserved in the shipboard journals of seafaring men, and some women.Every page is a marvel, informed by meticulous scholarship and a deep understanding of the literary,musical, artistic, and sociological context in which these songs were composedand transmitted. The texts were "excavated" (as Frank aptly says) from many thousands of manuscript pages and arranged according to a taxonomy that will please folksingers and scholars alike. The selection is masterful. It includes dozens of gems never before published (some of them original sailor compositions) as well as unique and fascinating versions of songs that will be well-known to sea music enthusiasts. Each text is accurately transcribed -- no small feat -- and set to melodies that Frank determined to be authentic, whichis nothing short of astonishing. The headnotes and annotation are a gold mine of information, the illustrations,drawn from museum archives and presented here for the first time, are a revelation; and theintroductory essays should be required reading for every student of nineteenth-century working class culture. This ground-breaking volume, as delightful as it is important, belongs in every major research library andon the shelves of everyone interested in sea music and nineteenth-century American culture.

Stuart's evolving Pirate songbook is certainly the gold standard by which all other publication efforts will be judged.

Amazon's listings never fail to amaze me. As far as I know, I have just received the first printed copy of this book, and it's sitting on my desk beside me. Amazon is not only listing it, but listing several other suppliers of new copies an at least one vendor who' selling a used copy.They must have a time machine to go along with their money machine.

re Amazon -

I've recently been chasing up an ISBN from Bowker for a title due out next month. I had to fill in all the details (which could be altered if things changed on our side) so they could find our organisation's outstanding ISBNs from the good ol' days when we last published.

The info is now on their gi-normous database as coming out in April, so as Dick & Loomis would have submitted similar info on their impending book, & Amazon's bots would be keeping an eye on the Bowker DB.

Don't get me wrong---I don't dislike Amazon. They buy our book from us, and the author still gets his royalties. It's just that they demand a dispoportionately high discount (50% rather than the usual 40% for resellers), which puts a noticeable crimp in CAMSCO's income.
   The information reches Amazon from the printer, not the publisher, and I still can't understand how thery're selling used copies of a book that hasn't sold any copies yet.

That's one hell of a list. I have the first edition and that's awesome. I'll be checking to see what the extras are on the first edition.

I can remember when Huntington's book first came out and how sought after that was, and that's just an anthology of songs. This book has all that and the histories behind the songs as well.
