Da ShantY Yellmen
[YELLMEN1] - 5 in Stock
A cd to record a great variety of songs of the sea. Not all the songs of this selection are traditional shanties. WThere are some well-known work songs like Blow the Man Down, The Pump Shanty, Drunken sailor and Whisky Johnny
and a lovely forebitter, the American Venezuela. The cd also has a Royal Navy song, Spanish Ladies and suggestive songs like A’ rovin’ and the naughty Bell-Bottomed Trousers, a plaintive Leave her, Johnny and the beautiful social lament The Shoals of Herring. The latter is not a shanty but written by the legendary Scottish balladeer Ewan McColl, and often sung by other folksingers.
