about

THE GOLDEN VANITY Traditional folk song, arr C.Blundell

I first heard this song in the 1960’s sung by Des Lindberg, and also my late father, Keith Blundell. I was inspired to play it myself, after hearing a wonderful recording of the song by Rory Block.
According to Hugill (in Shanties of the Seven Seas), this song appears to be based on the seventeenth century ballad called “Sir Walter Raleigh Sailing in the Lowlands.”
There are many different versions of this chilling story.
