Does anyone know if Harry H Corbett recorded anything else besides that brilliant version of ' Blow The Man Down ' on the Topic Album of the same name ?

Thanks Windhover and 999, it seems Harry only recorded the one folk song then.

Blow The Man Down
Harry H Corbett, with Ewan MacColl & A. L. Lloyd, in Blow The Man Down, Topic TSCD464 (TRL3, The Singing Sailor. Ewan MacColl, A. L. Lloyd and Harry H. Corbett, 1956?)

As I was a-walkin' down Paradise Street
To me way, hay – blow the man down!
A flash looking packet I chanced for to meet
Oh, gi' me some time to blow the man down!

Blow the man down, bullies, blow the man down
To me way, hay – blow the man down!
Blow him right back to Liverpool town
Gi' me some time to blow the man down!

She was bowlin' along with the wind blowin' free
To me way, hay – blow the man down!
She clewed up her courses an' waited for me
Oh, gi' me some time to blow the man down!

She was round in the counter and bluff in the bow
To me way, hay – blow the man down!
So I hold in all sailing cryin', well enough now!
Oh, gi' me some time to blow the man down!

Where she did hail from I really can't tell
To me way, hay – blow the man down!
But I gave her my flipper, we're both bound for hell!
Oh, gi' me some time to blow the man down!

Come all you young sailors, take warning by me
To me way, hay – blow the man down!
Never take a young Liverpool gal on your knee
Oh, gi' me some time to blow the man down!
