In Memoriam

To all those modern day pirates who cross off the wrong people.


  1. Very nice shanty! My first introduction to Barrett's Privateers was probably by The Pyrates Royale. However, my favorite version was sung by The Corsairs.

    If you have not heard it, let me suggest picking up an album by The Corries. The Corries are an Irish Folk Group and they do some wonderful music. My favorite album of theirs, "Barrett's Privateers" (I see a reoccurring theme here) is out of print. But their "Essential Corries Collection" has a very good selection.

  2. Thanks for the tip. I think i will.

  3. Any time! I'm available at any time as a resource for useless shanty trivia!

    By the way, I do want to thank you for some of the music you posted around Halloween. I ended up getting a CD because of your selections.
