Lighter Discovering world legacy of shanties by 'Shogun' (192* d) RE: Discovering world legacy of shanties by 'Shogun' 07 Mar 21

In one place Hugill actually expressed skepticism of Patterson's versions, even though he quoted them.

I've no doubt at all that Patterson, who did spend some time on shipboard, randomly "improved" some of his texts, though some of the lyrics are senseless enough to be real, if extemporized.

Why he did so, I don't know, since the extra choruses aren't even interesting! (Davis did a much better job of prettifying!)
