GUEST,Observer songs that are sneered at (67* d) RE: songs that are sneered at 24 Oct 18


Cannot see for the life of me why anyone would sneer or roll eyes at "Leaving of Liverpool" great song with a real ("True") story behind it.

Built in 1853 the David Crockett did from 1860 to 1874 sail under the command of a "hard-over" driving Master called Burgess who pushed his crew so hard that they mutinied San Francisco. Burgess was lost overboard in a gale off the Rio de la Plata in 1874 on the return voyage from San Francisco to Liverpool with a cargo of wheat. The Mate John Anderson assumed command of the vessel for the remainder of the voyage and was subsequently confirmed in position as Master of the vessel.
