Shanties from the Seven Seas: Shipboard Work-Songs and Songs Used as Work-Songs from the Great Days . Those who love the raw power of the working songs of the sea are probably well versed in the great works of Stan Hugill. This book is of a different league. 10 offers from £2. 1. Sailor Song: The Shanties and Ballads of the High Seas. It's obviously the work of a scholar, what else to expect from an 'Oxford University Press' book. It does not 'breathe the salt air' as Hugills work does but it gives a wealth of information about the history and use of the songs. In a way it is suited for a wider audience.

An excellent resource for anyone who has even the slightest interest in the history of maritime songs. I, myself, am a violinist and an author, not at all a singer, but I have an interest in shanties and songs from the seven seas, and found this book to be an invaluable addition to my reference collection. It's a lot of fun to finally see some of my favorites written out with a complete history of their lyrics, with explanation. The glossary at the back is incredibly helpful, as well.

I only lament the fact that there are relatively few references to the origins of the songs themselves, as that would definitely have come in handy for me when I go to write period pieces.

Presumably due to the decade in which this volume was published, the original lyrics of a majority of the sea songs were edited and many portions were simply omitted. This is extremely disappointing. Song after song is fit with a disclaimer from Hugill declaring that the theme has been disguised with his own made-up lyrics or simply deleted. Too bad 1961 wasn't as openminded as 2014. I am surprised the Mystic Seaport Museum does not make a modern effort to recollect Hugill's papers and republish the book with all the lewd and juicy lyrics reintroduced. Who in today's day and age is going to buy a censored version of old seasongs? Is not the lewd content of such music the hallmark of seasongs? Is it not the main attraction and in essence the reason for such songs to persevere in the cultural memory? Enthusiasts and researchers can both share the disappointment in perusing mutilated rememberings of songs fit with wonderful analysis as to origin, composition and place in history. We have truly lost a great deal of authenticity because of the prude sensibilities of the past.

Oh what a great book.

I am so glad I bought this book. Reading it is like sitting down with the old salt and getting to ask him questions. Shanties are a treasure that could easily get lost in time. I wish it came with a cd of these songs.

This is an excellent collection of songs. I am glad I bought it, but I really wish that it was printed on larger pages, so that the music is easier to read and the book would stay open.

This book is so wonderful I've printed Keats's "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer" on my bookmark. No student or admirer of songs of the sea should be without a copy. I've read nearly every word, and still spend time with it every day.
