ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Captain Quint has always seemed to steer their boat into more uncharted waters, straying away from the stereotypical mixtures of margaritas, palm trees and hammocks and offering up something a little more unique. Something that trop-rock fans across the country have called - "refreshing". Something Captain Quint have dubbed... "Real Tropical Rock and Roll" - They have arrived at that destination with "Unsinkable Still.". This is the band’s introspective instructional audio lesson on life. They’ve just about covered every issue - self worth, sarcasm, sabotage, substance abuse, sinking ships, staying power, seduction, slippery slopes, and sunny days and they’ve managed yet again to conjure up an eclectic mix of musical styles in a way that has become undeniably, unmistakably, Captain Quint.

Another Great Disc From The Captain!!
Unsinkable Still - Captain Quint

I Wanna Be A Pirate: Walter Mitty meets "Pirate Looks at 40". Poor guy, wants to be a pirate but just doesn't have the guts for it.
Great lyrics, great guitar work, this song is a definite keeper. Will appeal to the escape-ist Buffett-listening crowd. Love this song.

I'm The Baddest Fish: My favorite song on this disc, should rock the house at any event, this is a party starting tune if there ever was one. Simple tune, rockin beat, what more could you ask for.

Wreck of the Oro Verde: Kevin Johnston has a way of telling the story of real life people and events in an entertaining way. This story of the legendary pot smuggling ship caught my eye a few years ago. So glad to hear the Captain's take on it. Love the harp, kudos to Kaare for a fine performance.

Unsinkable Still: The title cut is another wonderfully bouncy tune that is going to keep them on the dance floor. If you've been around the band for a while, you can probably pick out the autobiographical references. Captain Quint is Unsinkable Still, this song rises to the top of this disc.

Mistakes, Misfortunes, and Memories: Good rock steady beat, if I'm not mistaken. Has a nice laid-back Jamaican feel.

Porter the Pirate Killer; You been listening to "Semi-True Stories"? Another take on a true-life story, with some artistic license. Hey it could have happened this way, and this fits the Keys better than the real story of David Porter. Great song, listen closely, and call it your history lesson for today.

Bluer With Each Mile: I love the little bits at the beginning and end, a glimpse into the Captain Quint recording process. Call this a love song from a different point of view. This one put a smile on my face, both lyrically and with the honky-tonk piano and other... interesting instrumentation. I like it and I hope you guys had as much fun recording it as I do listening to it.

Gone: I like my Captain rockin', but the more I listen to this song, the more I like it. This one is a true life story, and it's just beautiful. Nice way to end the disc, leave them with something to think about.

Overall, another great set from Captain Quint. Lots of top-notch tunes, all of them are well performed, instrumented and produced. Got to add this whole CD to your party stash, road stash, etc.

The one thing I have always liked about Captain Quint is their ability
to create music about real life characters and situations and they have
managed to do this again in the CD Unsinkable Still. Yet they also manage
to create some lovely music which will delight parrotheads and folk/rock
lovers. I particularly enjoyed Porter the Pirate killer and The Wreck of
the Ora Verde. I reside in the Nations capital which has a rich
folk/bluegrass history and Captain Quint brings one of those traits to this
new cd by telling stories and painting pictures with song.
