Purchase "Dark Ocean"
The CD, "Dark Ocean", by the Black Irish Band is a fabulous tribute to pirates, privateers and sailors. The introduction and final song of this 13-trackalbum were written by band member, Patrick Michael Karnahan, and what asong writer he is! He can tell a story like no other!
The first track, "The Glorious Sea" is an instrumental. Patrick's inspiration for this song is the power and majesty of the ocean. Thisrousing piece is the perfect beginning to this CD...the band plays
this song with such enthusiasm and gusto you can actually feel the power held within the mighty sea.
The final song is the title track, "Dark Ocean". What a fitting name, and a fitting finale! This song is about sailors and their final night in a bar before heading out to the Berring Sea, probably the most difficult sea to navigate.
The remaining songs are all traditional songs that honor pirates and life along or on the sea. And what would a CD dedicated to pirates and sailors be wihtout "Drunken Sailor" and "The Derelict (Bottle of Rum)"? The Black Irish Band does such an outstanding job of these two maritime favorites!
I strongly urge you to buy "Dark Ocean", or I'll be suggesting ye walk the plank matey's!
