AllMusic Review by

Stuart M. Frank, Stuart Gillespie, and Ellen Cohn (playing tin whistle, ocarina, and concertina) perform three dozen sea chanteys and forecastle songs and instrumentals on traditional instruments (of the type available on shipboard), including "Shenandoah," "Maid of Amsterdam," "Santa Anna," "Tommy Gone to Hilo," "Sally Brown," and "The Greenland Fishery." The presentation is raw, unaffected, and honest, with no artifice or embellishment.
