Thread Name: Songs about the Exxon Valdez disaster (1989)
Subject: RE: Words? Wreck of the Exxon Valdez?
Hi,

Ralph McTell did a "beautiful" song, not about the Exon Valdez, but about an oil tanker which ran aground and broke up off the Shetland islands.

It is called "The Islands" and was used in "Billy Connolly's world tour of Scotland". Can be found on Ralph's "Sand in your Shoes" CD.

Slainte
