Album Notes
Pirates in the Desert is the 2010 album release from There Be Pirates!, California's premiere pirate jam band. The album contains a mix of traditional sea music re-written and re-arranged in a variety of styles ranging from bluesy NOLAesque to reggae, along with swashbuckling new There Be Pirates! originals, instrumental interludes, and the rocking pirate anthem, The Ballad of Captain Kidd, updated for arrgghhhhh modern pirates!
Pirates in the Desert follows the band's four-star and three-skull-rated album, Derelict, and continues the adventure. Get the woman's perspective - never heard in traditional sea shanties - in arrrgghhhh new takes on Blow the Man Down and Doodle Let Me Go, hear Bosun Ellen wax eloquently about her love for her cannon on My 18 Pounder, and join There Be Pirates! on adventures with The Ballad of Kerry Rose, or the rocking rendition of Captain Kidd. The title song on the album explains how the band set sail from Port Royal in 1692 (right around the time of the famous earthquake), and wound up in Joshua Tree, California.
Set sail for a rollicking good time with There Be Pirates! and Pirates in the Desert!
