Boston folkie Jaime Brockett became an underground radio sensation with his epic ballad ?Legend of the U.S.S. Titanic?, which updated the old Leadbelly song about how black prizefighter Jack Johnson had been denied passage on the Titanic because of his race to offer an, er, alternative explanation as to why the ocean liner sank (the captain and first mate were high from smoking hemp rope)! Definitely a countercultural classic.

"A CD no 60's/70's era hip music fan should be without!
Finally released(snatch it up while it's here!)Jamie dishes out some great folk fun with Legend of the USS Titanic and Talkin' Green Beret New Super Yellow Hydraulic Banana Teeny Bopper Blue. Oft overlooked but never forgotten by the faithful we now get to bask in the full glory of this LP on a clean, well transfered CD release. A must have in any self respecting collectors CD bin! Any fan of Alice's Restaurant should also posess this rare gem, mark my words it'll be gone and out of print so grab it while it's here."
I remember The Legend of the USS Titanic

"Back in the 60s and 70s an AM station in Little Rock, Arkansas (KAAY) had one of the best late-night underground radio programs in the country. It was called Beeker Street and its host was Clyde Clifford. Had a weird, and hypnotic soundtrack like synthesized dripping water. But I digress. The Legend of the USS Titanic was some of the regular fare served up on Beeker Street and was one of those frenetic songs that sent me in search of more. I have a treasured LP I picked up in the 80s and am thrilled to now be able to get a CD and save my precious vinyl. Titanic is right up there with Alice's Restaraunt and I am sure Arlo would be pround to share the stage with Jamie."
