Just a bit more bass is enough to make this one perfect. The song was a 1969 # 3 hit in Holland, it got to # 44 in the UK - shame on UK - for their retarded radio dj's decided it was too long, well, THEY were there too long. The band is named after a Burmese cat, Procul Harun, of one of their manager's friends. (So, sometimes managers are useful.) Not very bright pictures, I know, my video's are lousy, but, they're about music, not pictures.
A SALTY DOG
Gary Brooker (music)/Keith Reid (lyrics)
'All hands on deck, we've run afloat!' I heard the captain cry.
'Explore the ship, replace the cook: let no one leave alive!'
Across the straits, around the Horn: how far can sailors fly?
A twisted path, our tortured course, and no one left alive.
We sailed for parts unknown to man, where ships come home to die.
No lofty peak, nor fortress bold, could match our captain's eye.
Upon the seventh seasick day we made our port of call.
A sand so white, and sea so blue, no mortal place at all.
We fired the gun, and burnt the mast, and rowed from ship to shore.
The captain cried, we sailors wept: our tears were tears of joy.
Now many moons and many Junes have passed since we made land.
A salty dog, this seaman's log: your witness my own hand.
