Thread Name: info about Paul Clayton??
Subject: RE: info about Paul Clayton??
Yes, Barry, it was of great interest. I just picked up a $5.99 Paul Clayton CD at Tower called "Sailing and Whaling Songs of the 19th Century," CD 389 from Legacy International, Box 249, Pismo Beach, CA 93448. It has 20 cuts, from "The Maid of Amsterdam" to "Santy Anna." I wonder if it's the same as the LP you have, or if it's a combination of a couple of LP's. Legacy International has reissued a lot of older folk recordings, of mixed sound quality - this one is excellent.
The notes don't say anything about Paul Clayton himself. Lou or Barry, can you tell us any more? Hmmm. I wonder if the whaling museum in New Bedford can tell us more - by the way, the museum is a great place to visit.
