Bob Stuart CDs

Hello, Folks
Here is something you might not know about. One of our local heroes, and an old ship-and-stage-mate of mine, Bob Stuart, has lost his ability to perform these days, much to our collective sorrow.
However, he has amassed an impressive collection of his own recordings over the years, with a variety of material from traditional to contemporary and his own originals.
We are offering these CDs for sale here until he gets his own website. I am happy to think that some of you can get to enjoy the lovely voice and the lovely man who has enriched our soundscape here for so many years.
~ Gordon Bok

Gordon's latest release

Then and Now

Then and Now

"Here's a bit of a landmark: selections from my first commercial recording in a New York Studio, and tracks from sessions at home - 50 years later. Peggy Seeger wrote "I am old, I am young, I am all that I've been," and it's true that all the songs I have sung have guided my life and are still a part of me.
So here are songs (and tunes) from that 1965 album, some recently made or learned, and some old songs recently visited. Carol says it feels like thumbing through a musical photo-album.
After all, now wouldn't have have ever gotten here if it wasn't for all that then, eh?"
                          ~Gordon Bok

Sea Songs and Chanteys
Sea Songs and Chanteys
By Bob Stuart
“I had become interested in sea lore and songs as a young musician. As a child growing on the water, I always loved sailing and imagined what life was like for those sailors in the past. Throughout my life as musician they have remained a mainstay of my musical expression. The images of the sailors fighting the elements and each other always intrigued me, and the songs I sing express the rich tradition of the sea and struck a chord in my musical life. There is nothing like being on a schooner under full sail with the wind and salt air in your face and singing “I thought I heard the Old Man say, there is work tomorrow but no work today…”
“Sea Songs and Chanteys” was recorded in the studio of Limin music in Northport, Maine.”
~ Bob Stuart
