Just a note to mark my completion of (subject to some double-checking!) learning all the chanties in Stan Hugill's Shanties from the Seven Seas. I finished learning and recording the last one yesterday, 31 Jan. 2012. I do have yet to record, to satisfy my own sense of completion, one well-known chanty that for reasons of a time in the past I did not make my own version of.
There are also a couple more "songs used as chanties" that Hugill merely mentioned in passing but which I'd like to learn and record.
After that I will probably turn my attention back to this blog and the reassessment ('second pass') of the YouTube recordings, in order.
