Captain Swing is a mixed genre album by American folk singer-songwriter Michelle Shocked. It was first released by Mercury Records in 1989 and later reissued by Shocked's own label Mighty Sound in 2004. It was named after Captain Swing, the pseudonymous rebel leader who penned threatening letters during the rural English Swing Riots of 1830. The album was a cross-country inventory of swing musical styles-from Dixieland to Western, Big Band to BeBop.

Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Written-By – Michelle Shocked. Written-By – Mat Fox (tracks: A1), Michelle Shocked.

My X-wife turned me on to Michelle Shocked in 1999. FUN music for happy people. Lay back and kick the BoBo with this cool chick's music. Started listening to her back in 89 or so. I really like her album before this as well. It is a tie as to which one is better. Arkansas Traveler is good, but not as good as CAptin Swing & Short Sharp Shocked. More By Michelle Shocked. See All. Short Sharp Shocked.

Captain Swing Tracklist. 1. God Is A Real Estate Developer Lyrics. 2. On The Greener Side Lyrics. 4. Sleep Keeps Me Awake Lyrics.

MICHELLE SHOCKED-CAPTAIN SWING: Although her name implies punk, hard to pigeon-hole Texas folkie MICHELLE SHOCKED's third album is a charismatic cornucopia of western swing, big band, and slithery RNB. The cleverly annointed GOD IS A REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER gets the party started in style, draped in sassy brass and SHOCKED's seductive, understated vocals, followed by the equally engaging ON THE GREENER SIDE which features producer (and DWIGHT YOAKAM compadre) PETE ANDERSON's ringing six string work.

God Is a Real Estate Developer, 03:13. On the Greener Side, 02:55. Sleep Keeps Me Awake, 02:43. Cement Lament, 03:07. Looks Like Mona Lisa (Smells Like Tuna Fish), 02:32.

She treats the genre with affection and she's obviously having a good time swinging. Captain Swing may have confused fans of Short Sharp Shocked, but the album has several great moments, and most of all, it offers a good time.
