Dating back to an age when divers enjoyed celebrity status, “I’m A Diver” is an old music-hall song celebrating the independent life of a diver.
A little less than a hundred years ago scratchy sound recordings were at the cutting edge of technological achievement. Sadly, those early gramophone records weren’t renowned for having crystal-clear quality of sound. Neither was the brittle material used in their construction designed to stand up to rough handling.
Fortunately, I’d made a recording of one of my grand-father’s old records before I dropped and broke it. (And rather than see it forgotten and thrown away, I thought that some people might enjoy listening to it.)
And big thanks to Hyuu Prtr for kindly putting the lyrics onto song-boards for anyone tempted to join in on the chorus.
