Alan Arkin & Labour Standards

With two friends, he formed the folk music group The Tarriers, in which Arkin sang and played guitar. The band members co-composed the group's 1956 hit The Banana Boat Song, a reworking, with some new lyrics, of a traditional, same-name Jamaican calypso folk song combined with another titled Hill and Gully Rider.
