About this project
We are Captain Black's Sea Dogs, and we play good old-fashioned pirate music and songs of the sea. If you have ever seen us live or heard any of our CDs, you know what I'm talking about, but in case you haven't, here's an example of the type of music we do (These are actual rough edits of songs from the new CD):
Last September, we got together in the studio with several of our close friends and fans in attendance and recorded a live album. Now, after many months of editing, mixing, discussing, remixing, rediscussing (is that a word?), and re-remixing, the album is nearing completion. It is well over an hour of pirate music, jokes, toasts, limericks, and laughter. Some of the humor isn't necessarily for little pirate ears, so pirate parents may want to take that into consideration before unleashing this CD on their pirate young 'uns.
This album contains several songs that we have performed live for some time but have never before recorded, as well as a few of live versions of our favorite songs from previous CDs. We are really proud of the way this has turned out, and we hope you'll enjoy having a chance to hear what it's like to sit in on one of our live performances.
