After finding Neil's site a few weeks ago via a bird blog (I know weird connection) I have forgotten to check it regularly.
But I did buy the Rogue CD right away and I really love it and have been playing in almost exclusively.
There are a few songs with explicit lyrics and if you really want to see what the Good Ship Venus is like you can google the lyrics and find all the limericks attributed to the song. The bad thing is that song has a really catchy tune and you will find yourself sing it....
The two cd set is real, gritty, and fantastic. I love the real songs and can easily imagine them sung by sailors and pirates.
There are a few romantic sweet songs but not many and you will be wise to listen to the samples on Amazon.
And the best part is that there is a Rogues II coming out next summer.
Also if you love the cover art and would like to order it you can get Howard Pyle's art in poster form from the Delaware Art Museum. There is a great story and picture about the Flying Dutchman that will sound and look very familiar to a certain movie we have been enjoying.
