Think of it as The Seeger Sessions for the seaward set. Conceived by director Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp while filming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, this two-CD compilation features modern interpretations of centuries-old sea songs. From Sting’s foot-stomping “Blood Red Roses” to the spoken-word cadences of Lou Reed’s “Leave Her Johnny,” Rogue’s Gallery is a stirring musical voyage. The highlight? Guitarist Baby Gramps’s “Cape Cod Girls,” a raucous anthem that inspires you to shake some booty.
