A scurvy crew of fairweather sea-dogs is pressed into service for this belated second shipping of sea-shanties and pirate songs.

The port of Liverpool gets shouts out from Shane MacGowan, Sean Lennon and, less plausibly, Macy Gray; Tom Waits growls “Shenandoah” as if barely risen from a grave. Marianne Faithfull is a stately wreck on “Flandyke Shore”. And Patti Smith gives voice to a mermaid.
