Review -- CROFTER'S REVENGE -- Ghost Ship

GHOST SHIP
Crofter's Revenge
Independent
7-out-of-10

You might not expect to find Celtic music to be coming out of Regina yet Crofter's Revenge proves you can create music soaked in a salty brine just about anywhere. On this album the band has focused on a pirate theme, so you're in for a rollicking good time.
What is most interesting here is that most of the songs are original. It's very cool that a band about as landlocked as you can get in Regina, SK., can produce lyrics telling tales of pirates on the high seas. Yet this band does it with panache.
The CD starts off with the jaunty Fly the Jolly Roger written by band mate Chris Weber, and the recording is spattered with other cuts such as Mighty McPeete by band mate Rick McBain and Ghost Ship, Sunken Chest Reel by Don Modderman.
Mixed in with the new material Crofter's Revenge gives their take on traditional songs such as Rocky Road to Dublin, Step It Out Mary and Mari-Mac.
It's a nice balance between the old and new on this little Prairie excursion under the Jolly Roger flag.
Now I will say that on my particular copy of this CD, there were a lot of skips, but I assume it's just this copy and not a general problem, but if you get one and it does, let the band know.
That said, this CD is just way too much fun not to recommend. This is a band which clearly had fun in the recording studio, and one can only imagine that live they'd be a true party band.
So lift anchor maties and search this one out. A nice effort of the high seas from the flat Prairies. You can find the band online at www.croftersrevenge.ca
