Sea Shanties and Loggers' Songs

Sea Shanties and Loggers' Songs

Sam Eskin, according to the album’s original notes in 1951, "has been traveling across the United States for thirty-five years, learning songs from all sorts of people in all sorts of places." This fascinating collection of work songs is the product of Eskin’s wandering and includes extensive notes about life in logging camps.
