Notes

The cover picture is a detail from Cachalot Fishing a contemporary print after a painting by the French artist Louis Garneray (1783-1857). Reproduced by courtesy of the National Maritime Museum.
A broadsheet of the words of the songs and a brief account of the whaling industry is inside the sleeve.

    The label and run out engravings on each side tally with each other but when you play the record it plays the opposite side to what it states. Anybody else’s copy the same as mine?
