GUEST,Dick Holdstock Origins: Whaling Johnny (36) RE: Origins: Whaling Johnny 02 Jun 14


Getting ready to sing "Whaling Johnny" at Mystic this year (2014). In the above chats I saw no mention of the 1978 recording by Jim Mageean from which I learned it. It is on a Greenwich recording titled "Of Ships and Men". Jimmie says it is a halyard shanty collected by Stan Hugill while he was taking part in the Tall Ships Race from Bermuda to Washington a few years before this recording
