about

This unusual version of a widely sung traditional shanty was a favourite of legendary Isle of Wight yacht and dinghy designer, builder and sailor and all-round 'character' Uffa Fox, who also had a brief recording career in the early 60s. He wasn't the greatest of singers but a rumbustious personality shines through the whole thing. Amazingly, those recordings are now available on iTunes, and I swear that hearing old Uffa with his soft Hamshire burr and bluff seamanlike deliver accompanied by an orchestra and The Mike Sammes Singers will make you smile...
