As this will be my last post until the weekend I thought I should make a bit of an effort and come up with a theme. And the theme is songs about mariners having strange encounters. "Oh no", I hear you say, "not that old chestnut again". I'm afraid so.

First up are Bread, Love & Dreams with "The Strange Tale of Captain Shannon and the Hunchback from Gigha". They were a bunch of Scottish hippies who probably suffered for being perceived as Incredible String Band wannabes, but are worth a listen in their own right.


They are right, it is a strange tale, but perhaps not as strange as that told by Andy Roberts in "The One-Armed Boatman and the Giant Squid".
