Ladies and Gentlemen, I present a labor of love.
I wrote this song 15 years ago. For comparison, the original is at: http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=29105

Ed graciously recreated, updated and performed the guitar parts (and sang the intro) and I recorded new vocals, throughout. Ed mixed this version (and a few others), much to my delight.

We've brought the "Sea Chanty" forward to the 21st century...with utmost respect for the original, modern production values and a few "new" twists of the oars.

Fantastic work guys. A wonderful blend of folk and classic rock. The guitar work is incredible, and Baboon, your vocals are superb. Love the whistling and water fx...nice touch.

Frank,

Thanks so much for letting me in on this wonderful song with you. I fell in love with the original version the first time I heard it. It was, again, a pure pleasure to work with you. I am glad you are pleased with the final result.

Until next time,
Ed

Great, great song Baboon. Always a pure pleasure when Ed puts his mark on it too!

But I have to be completely honest, I think I like the old wooden ship better, I have been listening to that one for months, it is one of my most favorite songs. I think I like the fact that it's less produced. To me it emotes a sailor, a ship, and the sea. It paints a picture of solitude and love and hope.

All that said, for a times I was wishing and wondering if you'd do a "studio" version. I do like it Alot! Just not as much as the other. Awesome work, the two of you.

I love the "Yellow submarine" feels at the begining. The fisher men and you carried those whistles like if you had always been a sailor. Next stop the Amsterdam harbour. Lot of beers and girls. Love it.

Wow, you guys get up early! Thank you for kind comments, very much. Ed, you got skillz. I'm really happy he took on this project. I am infatuated with the way Ed makes me sound. His mixing is sublime. I never have to worry about 2's, 3's and 4's in Production when Ed mixes.

Wonderful! This really lifts the song! You're voice is perfect, and I find that this version is much more joyful and alive than the previous one. Everything is crisp and clear, and the backing vox are very persuasive. Straight to favourites.

Cheers,
Adrian

Wonderful track! Very unlike most of the "electronica" tracks you hear here on iComp (although they have a legitimate place here). Original and catchy. Love the acoustic guitar work.

OK, this is the first time I've heard whistling on iComp. Nice touch.

hahahaha....love the intro....check that, love the whole song. This thing is really amazing, I just love the feel to it...such a sea song while just happy and light.

Thoughts:
Usually I like to critique the song, but there wasn't really much wrong with this. I don't know if the accent was natural or added separately, I thought maybe it could do without....though of course if its natural there's nothing you can do about it....

This is just fantastic, the harmonies are fantastic, and it changes up now and then to give a great variety. I love the random-ish guitar licks that ran up and down. Also, I started laughing out loud at the whistling....how it started like a typical shanty whistle and then just went all over the place...it was fantastic. This is a great song, loved it..,
