ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
By mid-December every year you're probably sick of hearing the same old same old Christmas songs everywhere you go "ad nauseum". Here's a mild antidote.

What if those old carols had been composed by salty of sea dogs in days of yore when the tall ships plied the oceans and the seven seas? This medley re-imagines several classic Christmas carols as those old-time sailors might have sung them (except that they are probably much less rude!)

In this collection you'll find:

Christmas in Gaol (to the tune of "Silent Night")
Away in a Merchantman (to the tune of "Away in a Manger)
No Rest Ye Scurvy Sailormen (to the tune of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen")
What Ship Be That? (to the tune of "What Child Is This?")
O Little Town of Port Royal (to the tune of "O Little Town of Bethlehem")
Reefin' Sails (to the tune of "Jingle Bells")

Dare you to sneak this on on the music system in your local WalMart!
