Talk Like a Pirate

Tracks and Credits

Talk Like a Pirate is the fourth album by Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate, following up his 2017 Children’s Album Grammy contender The Flying Pirate Circus. It sails from Rock to Folk to Pop to Nursery Rhyme. There are two thundering dinosaur songs with Tyrannosaurus RRR and Peggy the Peg-Leg-Osaurus. Pirate Grace O’Malley is full of history, mystery, and myth. Potty humor appears in Pirate Party Pooper and Sink the Cheerio. Broadway can be spied off the starboard while listening to Nine Lives of Lucky and Making Waves. See Me by the Sea and Anastasia’s Dance provides a quiet interlude. The Ship Will Rock does just that, as does the title track Talk Like a Pirate which offers specific examples and general instruction about how to bandy like a Buccaneer.

Producer Andre Maquera (of 8084 fame) wails on lead guitar & talk box and adds deft touches of bass, banjo, and backing vocals. Tracy Wolters delivers deep, soulful vocals on half of the tracks. Fellow Smugglers’ Notch Resort Entertainers “Goodtime” Charlie Rice (of Downpour fame) and Sam Averbuck sing on several songs. Me Very First & Only Matey
