Star Rogers: The Mary Ellen Carter<br> White Squall<br> Free In The Harbor<br>

My favorite: Home From The Sea


Dylan - Boots of Spanish Leather

I’m with Paul the Pirate. Pretty much any Stan Rogers album has at least thre great maritime songs. <br><br>Barretts Privateers<br>Maid on the Shore<br>Fishermans Wharf<br>Make and Break Harbor<br>Free in the Harbor<br>Mary Ellen Carter<br>Tiny Fish for Japan (a fishing industry lament)<br><font size="-1]Northwest Passage</font><br><font size="-1]The Last Watch, <br>White Squall</font><br>Fogerty’s Cove…<br><br><br>The list goes on and on. <br><br>The best was the wreck of the Athens Queen, about a bunch of drunks scavenging cases of French Brandy of a wreck in their harbor. If you ain’t heard Stan R, do yourself a favor and check him out. <br><br>
