Sea Shanties is the debut album of progressive rock band High Tide. It was one of the first albums to use violin as a rock instrument. The cover artwork was drawn by Paul Whitehead. Denny Gerrard (of Warm Sounds) produced Sea Shanties in return for High Tide acting as the backing band on his solo album Sinister Morning. The recording sessions for the two albums overlapped, with Sinister Morning being finished in late June 1969, and Sea Shanties being started on the 2nd of that month.

High Tide is the second album by High Tide. The album is slightly less heavy, with folk-influences within the band's sound. Though guitarist Tony Hill would later record with a new band under the High Tide banner, as well as releasing posthumous compilations of demos, this was the last proper album by the original group.

High Tide had the muscularity of a no-nonsense proto-metal band, but they also ventured into prog territory with changing time signatures and tempos, soft-hard dynamics, multi-part arrangements, and even some ornate faux-Baroque interludes.

High Tide (1970)High Tide1970. Sea Shanties is the debut album of progressive rock band High Tide. High Tide weren't a power trio, though, and it was the interplay of.

High Tide's music really lies somewhere in between "hard" and "art", with more penchant towards the former, I'd say, on their debut album and more towards the latter on the second one. In both cases, though, it's not the kind of hard-rock or art-rock we're used to when we speak of late Sixties.
