Subject: RE: Sailors' Songs or Chanties- Songbook Index
A review of Marston's _Shanties_, in Music & Letters (april 1922), is simple and blunt. The review asks what the point is to print a dozen of the best known shanties when there were already existing a half-dozen collections full of dozens of shanties.

Ah yes, but what little gems does it hold, like the "Swing yo' tail" (current thread) fragment?
