I drove friends crazy with this.

We know Canada's Stan Rogers up New Hampshuh...

I was introduced to Stan Rogers in grad school some three decades ago. I can still sing this....

Kinda aural beer innit.

I gotta brush up on my Robert W. Service - the verse will all sound like shanties in my head.

There's little shanti in these shanties.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm melinda:

I went on a sea shanty bender on Youtube a few months ago and discovered videos of a Monday night sea shanty pub sing in the Twin Cities, looked like such fun.
  7:18pm yippie:

@Jeff, check the Nathan Evans tiktok video of the Wellerman.

@Meli, right?! You'll have to let me know!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm ultradamno:

I'm guessing Friggin' In The Riggin/Good Ship Venus is unairable. Mekons have a nice shanty called Shanty.
  7:27pm Meli:

I mostly know the EL Lloyd album
Avatar 7:27pm Fredericks:

I've been digging this stuff, lately. Never heard the Florida song though. I like it.
Avatar 7:28pm Fredericks:

Forgot to hit send earlier.
Avatar 7:29pm Dan Bodah:

@ultradamno, yep -- The Good Ship Venus is possibly the filthiest song I have ever heard in my life -- GG Allin caliber.
Avatar 7:30pm Dan Bodah:

Loudon Wainwright III has a very sweetly sung version on Rogue's Gallery though -- www.youtube.com...
  7:30pm Meli:

HA! not this one though! lol
  7:30pm yippie:

i could also go for 1 about the native Hawaiians eating captain cook
Avatar 7:31pm βrian:

Actually, maybe it's that lake shanties more evoke shanti than do sea shanties.

Also, peppermint schnapps rather than rum.
Avatar 7:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Might just be a Trend I can't find anything in to object to... Likely not 'newsworthy' long anyroad...
Avatar 7:34pm Fredericks:

I hear more Bluegrass style harmonies on the Poxy Boggards than the other songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm melinda:

I like the Wainwright version of the filthy song
  7:35pm Meli:

I like those Scallywags!
  7:36pm Davefrom Brooklyn:

Thanks Dan,in a Sea O' Trouble, you, and WFMU are a liferaft of sound!
  7:37pm Meli:

the album I grew up with was callled Blow Boys Blow, AL Lloyd and someone else. Some songs definitely not radio edits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Richard S:

This is all great sing-along stuff. Easy rhythm, easy rhymes.... That's why they WORK as shanties!
Avatar 7:37pm Fredericks:

Does Bad Religion sing sea shanties? Their harmonies seem similar.
  7:38pm ?:

This guitar lick reminding of bin Jovi cowboy
  7:39pm Meli:

it's reminding me of PJ Harvey dress!
  7:39pm pgalub:

I've seen a million faces, and I've sea-shantied them all! (Hi Dan!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm joe mulligan:

what a show Dan! inspiring to get my family clan aran sweater but for tonight wearing a double cuff cap will do
Avatar 7:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

One theory (hypothesis?) is the origin of Music with Humans is in collective Work synchronization. Another about the origins of the term 'Rock' as applied to Music in the USA is same relating to loading Mississippi River boats...
  7:42pm Meli:

there's definitely those call and response songs that are there to keep everyone in synch hoiseting sails and stuff
  7:43pm Meli:

LOL I was like I know this!! I played Bllack Flag for the shanties really
Avatar 7:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Maybe a crucial thing in our evolution - but then I think Music is even far more primordial. I mean - birds *dance* fergawdsake. Probly Music long before speech... & the Mystic in me says Music is just of the nature of vibrations in the Universe in the 1st place...

@Meli I grew up with a National Geographic album called Songs And Sounds Of The Sea, which included Blow, Boys, Blow. One of my favorites.

Great show, Dan! Thanks for putting this all together!

loving all these shanties, Dan! Ewan & Peggy (w/ Charles Parker) did a great radio episode "Singing the Fishing" youtu.be...
  7:54pm Meli:

I guess not as sad as the version I know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Iºkºe:

I only caught the end of that last track. Was that about the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the most boring place on the Eastern Seaboard? A hundred years there would be like an eternity.

Yeah, that's the cleaner version of Fire Down Below...less speculation about the parson's daughter

I JUST today played “the mermaid” by Paul Clayton for one of my classes today cuz some student was into drawing mermaids! Crazy!

Avatar 2:58pm Mitten John:

Stan Rogers: What a talent! Wrote convincing songs from point of view of sailor, rancher, oil field worker, farm wife, man in old folk’s home…
Saw him twice at the Ark in Ann Arbor, MI. I sat stage right observing the sweat drip off the tip of his nose and Garnet pounding down Stroh’s. He sang until he started to get hoarse, then announce he’d finish with two more songs.
33 years old. Shit.
Avatar 3:00pm Mitten John:

Barrett’s Privateers: An excellent documentary on Stan called “One Warm Line” was shown on CBC a long time ago. Here is a link to the portion of it in which Stan tells how he came to write the song, then he and the boys give a rollicking rendition of it sitting around a table pounding their feet. youtu.be...
Also, a parody of the song based on a tasting of Garnet Rogers’ home brew: youtu.be...
