Songs of the Sea: The National Maritime Museum Festival of the Sea

Recorded in open air at the 1979 Hyde Street Pier in San Francisco, this 21-song collection of sea songs includes shanties and other sea songs performed with instruments and sung a cappella. Lyrics speak of the storms at sea, bidding farewell to loved ones, and the excitement of returning home after a long journey, among other themes.
