McGuinn’s Folk Den » Whoa Back Buck

"I learned “Whoa Back Buck” from Bob Gibson. Lead Belly also did a version of this song. It has a lot of nonsense verses that are interchangeable with those of other folk songs." http://www.ibiblio.org/jimmy/folkden-wp/?p=7286

  2. McGuinn’s Folk Den - Rolling Down to Old Maui

    "This is a Pacific whaling song. Most whaling songs I know are Atlantic based, sailing to Iceland and Greenland whale fisheries. This is the story of a ship based in Maui that sailed to the Kamchatka_Peninsula where there were many types of whales in the 1800s."
