A-Roving & Drunken Sailor by Mordy Bauman (back to back shanties in MP3)

A-Roving & Drunken Sailor by Mordy Bauman (back to back shanties in MP3)

These back to back shanties by American baritone Mordy Bauman (1912–2007) are full of exuberance. ‘A-roving’ is about a sailor’s escapade in Amsterdam’s redlight district. It is followed by the equally bouncy ‘Drunken Sailor’. The original 78rpm record containing the two songs was digitised for the Internet Archive by the California-based Kahle/Austin Foundation. (4.8 MiB, MP3, 2:53 minutes)

An awesome version of the popular shanty ‘Drunken Sailor’ by The Roger Wagner Chorale. Founded in 1946, the Chorale was one of the first professional choral ensembles in the United States. This song was included in the group’s 1955 album ‘Folk Songs Of The New World’ and is courtesy of the Internet Archive. (2.1 MiB, MP3, 1:40 minutes)
