CD: Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys
While working on the two “Pirates Of The Carribean” films, Johnny Depp and director Gore Verbinski became fascinated with the lore and fable of the pirates and sailors who ran the high seas. They brought in producer Hal Willner, who brings his knack for matching maverick musicians with extraordinary material. “Rogue’s Gallery” offers a look at the hardships, the horrors, the lusts and lurid depths, and the crystal beauty that led men to the sea in ships for hundreds of years.
Gavin helped Hal Willner organise the Dublin sessions and appears on two songs on the album: Baltimore Whores and Bully in the Alley.
