Every so often, Mystic Seaport releases a CD of a particular Sea Music festival with a cut from every performer. The 1999 festival was released in 2000 with Cliff presenting one of his “signature” songs, Old Moke Pickin’ On A Banjo. Check with www.mysticseaport.com for information on this and other festival releases.
Cliff was the catalyst for the forming of the singing group with the Ancient Mariners Fife & Drum Corps – The Ancient Mariners Chanteymen. This album is dedicated to our man!
This album below is a wonderful collection of gems for the collector of sea music recordings! I am not aware if it has been officially released on CD or MP3, but one might find a copy via Ebay. I have a copy I digitized myself and if you are looking for a copy, send me a comment request. Meanwhile, below is a sound segment of Louis Killen ripping out the tune Ten Penny Bit, followed immediately by Cliff singing The Dreadnought with a chorus of Jeff Warner, Gerret Warner, and Tony Saletan.
Hi, Cliff. Nice website — congratulations! I want to let you know that the website you have listed for obtaining the Roast Beef CD is now defunct. Best bets are CD Baby and Amazon.
I had fun playing a zombie with Joe, and was astonished by his story about the “flash gals” who show up at the Gris for Wild Rover. You are my idol.
All the best,
A friend recently showed me your rendition of Lowlands Away (which was absolutely lovely!) and I’ve been hooked on your Spotify albums ever since. I’ve been searching for an MP3 version of Songs & Sounds of the Sea but have yet to come across one; could I take you up on your offer of the digitized copy?
Thank you for sharing your talent and music with all of us!
All the best from California,
Good morning, Paige,
Yes, I can put together a CD of Songs & Sounds of the Sea… Or would you prefer a thumb drive? I’ll write you at your email address for where to send it.
Joseph (I’m Cliff’s site manager)
A CD would be wonderful- thank you so much! Feel free to email me and we can coordinate :)
Hi, I was hoping I could take you up on your offer of a digitized copy of Songs & Sounds of The Sea. It’s a great record, but unfortunately never rereleased in modern formats.
Hello Joseph. Look for a private email from me.
