Jim Mageean – Haul Away (2020) – A Collection of Hauling Shanties.
After spending more than 50 years gathering all the information on maritime songs; particularly the shanties or work songs used by sailors. He finally decided to share some of what he learned; with other lovers of these songs in the Jim Mageean – Haul Away (2020).
Jim Mageen sang with all the greatest shanty singers of our world; through his old friend Stan Hugill and others such as Louis Killen, Johnny Collins, Pat Sheridan, Marek Szurawski; and many more that cannot be listed, He is one of not too many shantymen left who singing and learn; traditional as it is, shanties and forebitters.
The collection includes 34 very special favored Jim songs, some of them published and recorded for the first time. Everyone contains a description with essential information about work that needs to be done when using a particular shanty; so you can sing shanty smartly; knowing in your imagination when you have to haul the rope or push the bar. And the last thing that I can tell, is that book contains CD with all songs from the book.
