I put this list together last Christmas on Rhapsody. It's a lot of good yachtie music. Just cut and paste the following link in the browser...South Australia and Feel Us Shaking are two of my all-time favorite "on watch" songs.

Heard a piece on the radio a few weeks ago about a compilation of sea shanties (I know, stay with me on this one!!) but performed by such luminaries as Lou Reed, Bono, Shane McGowan etc etc . Anybody know anything about it or know what its called?

The pirate CD is called Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys It's a little sleepy for my taste, but if you run the title through a search engine, it's easy find. I know it's available from Amazon, but I'd try to find it on i-tunes or Rhapsody so you can listen to it before you shell out the dough.
