Old song recordings are a delight to listen to. They have a certain charm, a character, like vintage wine. They can bring back memories of one’s childhood… of grandparents who are no longer around… and of family phonographs that have long fallen silent.
The following sea songs were recorded a century ago. They are part of a musical history that belongs, not to one nation alone, but to the world. Click on the titles to play and download the recordings.
Can You Help?
For years, Marine Café Blog has been promoting maritime culture and history through music. There are currently some 260 music-related files in the Downloads section.
I hope to at least double this number. Finding the songs that readers will appreciate and, in many cases, remastering the audio files involve a great deal of time and effort.
So, if you can, please make a small donation through Buy Me a Coffee. You can give as little as $5. Your support will be highly appreciated.
