Valparaiso Round the Horn

This is a CD with a difference - a combination of narrative and song - there is lots of interesting facts as well as some excellent singing, a good introduction to the use of different shanties

Valparaiso Round the Horn ... Rio Grande ... Shanandoah ... Drunken Sailor ...Hanging Johnny ...South Australia ...Shallow Brown ... Poor Old Horse ... A Hundred Years Ago .... Little Sally Rackett ... Lindy Low .... Old Maui ... The Captions Apprentice ...Roll The Woodpile Down ... Paddy Doyles Boots ... Lowlands ... Leave Her Johnny Leave Her



"This is the best sea shanty album in the world - at least I'm pretty sure, I've heard most of them and this is it." - Tor Jonassen WRDVfm Radio Philadelphia.

"In this first class compilation it is difficult to separate entertainment from information. Joe Stead and his crew of singers cram more of both into the space of one hour than I would have thought possible. I discovered shanties and facts that were new even to this seasoned sea song fanatic. By means of singing and narration we are taken on a typical sailing voyage from Liverpool to Valparaiso via Cape Horn in 1860. Joe and the chorus are in excellent form, and overall the cd manages to convey almost every element of sea board life but the smell" - Cyril Tawney.
