Hadn't heard this before - Very soothing, uplifting and peaceful, much more so than the only other 'Caldonia' I know, by Louis Jordan's Tympany Five.

When you take the 'e' out, it lets in the noise.

Tee-hee. Louis (and, a little later, the even more frantic Lord Lebby) did spell it that way.

I have memories of sailing from Oban down the West coast to Falmouth and then across to Le Harve, on a 55ft Nicholson yacht a lifetime ago. As we left Oban we ran into a force 5 gusting to chucking-up. 

Whilst I love the imagery, serenity in the video,  struggling to reconcile it with the terrors of the deep we experienced those first days,

I was offered and took a place as crew couple of years later, Portsmouth to Gib,  happy days experience, may have something to do with a particularly lovely lass I got to know on the trip.  

 

This is not meant to be the start of a war stories saga, just saying.

It's a little less soothing but equally as enjoyable when being hollered full belt round King's Cross Station by a bunch of football louts I mean supporters heading down  to watch Rangers play Pompey. :D
