Bawdy Sea Shanties - MP3 Player

 

gpmultimedia.jpg

These Sea Shanties are Classic, timeless pieces of Mariners Folklore which are, sadly, never heard in the Hi-Tech Missile age navies of today.

 

These Albums were recorded by an Amercian by the name of Oscar brand - The First Album - 'Bawdy Sea Shanties' was recorded in 1958 and is accredited to be the first ever Stereophonic Vinyl Record ever produced. This album contains Sea Shanties from mainly the British Royal Navy and some date back hundreds of years.

 

The second Album, 'Every Inch A Sailor' is predominantly United States Navy Shanties and Ballads and many are about the USN in WW2.

 

But most of these 'ditties' originated from the Royal Navy and have been handed down over hundreds of years, modified, added to and subtracted from, however these versions are as close to the originals for their time as is possible.

 

Use the panel below to select the tune that you want. Although I have 'digitally remastered' them and fully restored them from my original vinyls that I purchased in Sembawang, Singapore in 1970 the versions available here are mono, 11000 Mhz internet quality mp3s only. Enjoy!
