Amazon Review
Here are over 150 rousing sea shanties, forecastle songs and lumber-woods ballads traditional in the days of sailing ships and logging camps. The songs are given exactly as recorded from the singing of individual veterans of deep-water and square-rigged ships, the brigs and barkentines of the West Indies trade, the Grand Banks fishing schooners, and Northern logging camps and river drives. Each man's own wording and vocal embellishments are faithfully captured.
