Hi,

The FaceGroup wonders whether we have an index of Shanties from the most common shanty books. Do we?

There is a thread with a load of lists on it. Saw it and can't find it now. However, I did see it.

Hi, Mysha - if you put index in the Filter box on the main Mudcat page and set the date back to "all," you'll see all our Index threads. This thread (click) should keep you busy for a long, long time.

Most of the books listed in that thread are out of print - but many are available for download at archive.org or books.google.com

For the most part, we intentionally did not index the books already covered by the Traditional Ballad Index.

Hope that helps.

-Joe-

Thanks, Joe.
Can I send that answer back to FaceGroup?

You should be able to filter in a chanty index using the Roud Index at VWML online. Gibb Schreffler's study of the published collections of chanties would cover that admirably. It's not expensive. Title 'Boxing the Compass'. Highly recommended.

Hi, Mysha - for the most part you are free to share anything posted at Mudcat. Right off, I can't think of anything on Muscat that you can't share.

Thanks Joe,

I'm used to contributors who are perfectly willing to share information, but are less keen on those same words being reused in an online site, hence I try to be careful when I intent to forward information that way. Also, some people will answer me, assuming I have vast knowledge, while it's usually the lack of such knowledge that is the reason for me asking. Asking for permission gives them another opportunity to check that their words can be understood by the uninitiated.
