In cases of doubt I took the oldest recording I could find. Of course, all remaining errors are mine. Perhaps the most well-known type of song associated with the sea is the shanty—a functional work-song whose purpose was to make hard group labour somewhat easier and, at least, co-ordinated.

There are also many other songs about various aspects of sailing life that have become part of the traditional singer's repertoire. This collection is drawn from the great body of recordings made by Topic Records between the s and s.
The singers are all among the most outstanding of the great British Folk Music Revival and the songs have the strength and rugged beauty of a full-rigged sailing ship with a following wind, man and nature in The Man O War - Various - Round Cape Horn.
