"This second recording by Wickford Express, though more arranged and polished than their first (Away You Santy), remains true to maritime tradition in both content and atmosphere! Featured are vocals, fiddle, concertina, banjo, squeezebox, guitar, mandolin, pennywhistle, spoons and bones. The original trio is joined by several highly-respected and seasoned traditional players and the result is a seamless, solidly accoustic blend of instruments and robust vocals that are, by turn, beautiful and boisterous. This CD firmly established the band's status as the one of the nation's leading performers of sea music and it is easy to see why this recording gained accolades from sea music fans worldwide, and brought the group to Washington, DC where they performed at the Kennedy Center as recipients of a prestigious Excellence in Music Award. The group's knowledge, research, talents, and love of the tradition is clearly and enthusiastically represented here...another sea music classic for Wickford Express! Out-of-print and scarce, but well worth the search - highly recommended!"
