I'm still listening to this.  One of the greatest bands of all time. 

Twangy guitar and drums.

in the picture it looks as though the ship has a hog. That a nautical term for a ship that is top heavy on both bow and stern and a hump (hog) appears in the middle. I worked on a 115' double masted, with a flying jib,  gaf rigged schooner that was about 40 years old and had once been a racing sailboat that was converted into a yacht. It had a huge hog in the midsection.:)

That's interesting.  The Edmund Fitzgerald could have been overloaded or wrong weight distribution of the ore.

The Gordon Lightfoot song made me think of another great Canadian folkie, Stan Rogers. He was tragically killed in an on-ground airplane fire.

 

What a great voice.

What I found unbelievable is that they didn't have a depth recorder on the ship. In those days even the smallest shrimp trawler had a depth recorder. 

 

I couldn't imagine navigating without one, especially along the coast and the coral reefs of dry tortugas

where the depth can go from a 100 feet to crash in a heartbeat.

I agree from what little the clip shows of them.   They aren't given enough attention.

Believe it or not, after spending much of my younger days, right on up until my 20s,  in Murphy NC, I can actually do this.   It's a "thing" in the mountains.  Feel free to laugh, but it's the one of the best things for fun when semi-sober.

Didn't know whether to put this one in the music or poetry thread.  I was listening to it when it came out and it's still great.

 

Big Boy Pete

The joint was a jumpin' on the corner
Down on a Honky Tonk Street
When all of a sudden up drove a Cadillac
And out stepped a cat named Pete
 
Gems on-a every finger
Wore a tailor-made suit
He smoked a black cigar
He wore a Stetson hat
He wore a pair-a cowboy boots
 
He busted on through the doorway
Bad as-a he could be
He pulled out his pistol, he turned around
He said, 'My name is a Big Boy Pete'
 
The music stopped, there wasn't a sound
A-over in the corner stood-a, Bad Man Brown
Brown smiled a grin, he said, 'My friend'
'You take your three steps forward and I'm gonna-a, clue you in'
 
Now Pete said, 'A look it, here buddy'
'Fore I skin your hide'
I got a forty-five to keep me alive
Seven bullets on my side'
 
Brown pulled a knife, he jumped on Pete
They fought from the counter right on out to the street
They swung from north, they swung from south
Brown cut that black cigar right outta Pete's mouth!

Pete hit the ground, he yelled and screamed
Pete took his Stetson hat and beat the scene
 
Now if you're ever down on the corner
Down on-a Honky Tonk Street
Don't mess with Brown
He'll cut you down
Take a message from-a Big Boy Pete

BB King is a fabulous showman.  I like it that he mixes Black and White people with his blues.

Looks like fun.  Do they rehearse?

Yes, they rehearse.   The dance is simple enough, but they do rehearse the  choreographics.   I picked it up when I was about 5-6 yrs old and loved it.
