Blow The Man Down


Great Britain is an island nation whose very nature has been shaped by the sea and those who sailed it. So much of our national character and language can be traced back to our seafaring traditions, and there is always public interest in anything nautical. This is a treasure chest of seafaring songs delivered by such fine interpreters as Ewan MacColl, The Watersons, Bob Davenport, Louis Killen, Ian Campbell and Cyril Tawney. The two dozen performances include some of the best-known of all British sea songs and shanties, evoking a long and turbulent history of shipwrecks and sea-battles, of tall ships and whalers and the men who sailed in them.
