CD Reviews

Ragged but right
John M. Koss | Indy | 10/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Not strictly traditional. Some songs do feature the call and
response, but most have a more folk feel, with acoustic guitars
and an occasional pennywhistle or concertina. A few even have
drums, (sounding a little like the Pogues). There are three
different singers, all unique in there own right. The sound
has plenty of rough edges, which is good, and the melody is
always foremost in the songs. An enjoyable listen."
I remember listening to this group live when I was young.

"Sleeping under tables at the bars where they played when I was small or at my uncle's (Peter Marston) house when the practiced. Leave her Johnny Leave her is like a lullaby to me. This cd brings back many fond memories and the songs are great. David Jones' voice is something special to listen to. Peter, David and Charles (O'Hegarty) really give these songs their due."
A great collection of sailing songs to take on your boat!!

"This CD covers the complete range of sailing and whaling songs of the 1800's. Most interesting is the history of each song included in the jacket cover."
