Review Text This is a stirring collection of old and new sea songs. Ballads, hauling songs, deep water shanties and dance tunes are performed with Dale's trademark wailing hurdy-gurdy, mandolin, guitar, violin, percussion and fiddle. It's unusual material - it has everything from sensitive a cappella songs to bursts of rollicking, joyful musical energy. Pint's setting of C. Fox Smith's poem "The Packet Rat" is a highlight. "William Pint and Felicia Dale rank among North America's most exciting interpreters of music based in the traditions of the British Isles and France." - Dirty Linen. "You can tast the salt and travel the seven seas. Delightful vocals, dazzling range of instruments." - Folk Roots.
