Editorial Reviews

Boston folkie Jaime Brockett became an underground radio sensation with his epic ballad ‘Legend of the U.S.S. Titanic’, which updated the old Leadbelly song about how black prizefighter Jack Johnson had been denied passage on the Titanic because of his race to offer an, er, alternative explanation as to why the ocean liner sank (the captain and first mate were high from smoking hemp rope)! Definitely a countercultural classic.

A CD no 60's/70's era hip music fan should be without!

Finally released(snatch it up while it's here!)Jamie dishes out some great folk fun with Legend of the USS Titanic and Talkin' Green Beret New Super Yellow Hydraulic Banana Teeny Bopper Blue. Oft overlooked but never forgotten by the faithful we now get to bask in the full glory of this LP on a clean, well transfered CD release. A must have in any self respecting collectors CD bin! Any fan of Alice's Restaurant should also posess this rare gem, mark my words it'll be gone and out of print so grab it while it's here.

Back in the 60s and 70s an AM station in Little Rock, Arkansas (KAAY) had one of the best late-night underground radio programs in the country. It was called Beeker Street and its host was Clyde Clifford. Had a weird, and hypnotic soundtrack like synthesized dripping water. But I digress. The Legend of the USS Titanic was some of the regular fare served up on Beeker Street and was one of those frenetic songs that sent me in search of more. I have a treasured LP I picked up in the 80s and am thrilled to now be able to get a CD and save my precious vinyl. Titanic is right up there with Alice's Restaraunt and I am sure Arlo would be pround to share the stage with Jamie.

"Legend of the USS Titanic" is a hoot. A thirteen-minute hoot. I used to hear it on the Georgia Tech station, WREK, back in the early 1970s. (It wasn't till 1985 that my girlfriend mentioned that she had brought the LP they played it from to the station from Chicago.) Sadly, they were no longer playing it, when last i was listening to WREK - i asked someone at the station about it and he said they'd had complaints from a Jewish organisation about the lines about "...a bunch of Jewish people from Miami - they're jumpin' up and down and tradin' wives and Cadillacs..."

Well, i suppose that if you want to be offended by something, that could be a fairly offensive line.

Aside from that, the song (a talking blues, really) is absolutely hilarious. It's actually a comedic expansion of a Leadbelly song, which you can find on YouTube, and tells the story of what *really* happened to the RMS Titanic. Sort of. (I have to say i find it more plausible than the recent "explanation" offered by a descendant of one of the Titanic's officers...) It's quite long, and reveals how the presence of a pot-smoking First Mate ("...he's rollin' himself a smoke, he's diggin' the icebergs...") triggered a series of events. It also talks somewhat about Jack Johnson, the black fighter, who, popular {apocryphal} legend asserts, was denied passage on the Titanic's voyage.

Incidentally, Brockett, as a member of the Titanic Historical Association was the owner of a large collection of Titanic memorabilia, and keen to stress that the tale he spun in "The Legend of the U.S.S. Titanic" had no basis in actual historical fact.

I searched for a copy of this album for twentyfive years originally turned onto it,about 1978 contacted any and everyone I could to find a copy especially after all the time and effort just to find it.Good fun lots of memories,I am friends with a DJ at one of our local radio stations near me and it took him three days to acquire it after I had dropped it of at the station.
Some remember it some don't but ALLL have enjoyed,time travel.1969 is alive and well,never to be forgotten(did I have a good time)I heard I Did.

I have been looking , off and on, for this album for 40 yrs. and had no idea it could still be found. I started with a Google search, which led me to Amazon. At Amazon I find it's available as a CD- in England. A week later it's at my door.

If you "Google" - The Legend Of the USS Titanic or Jamie Brockett, you will find much more than I have the energy to write. "The Legend Of The USS Titanic" is one of the funniest underground "talking" folk songs ever written, right up there or (maybe) better than "Alice's Restaurant." No slur intended towards Arlo Guthrie at all.

Talkin' Green Beret New Super Yellow Hydraulic Banana Teeny Bopper Blues is the source of "long-haired, dope smoking, living in the commune, unwashed hippie marxists." From my misspent youth.
