This predates Titanic by quite a few years and features early White Star Liners on the cover. Quite a nice tune! Kindly sent in by the composer's great-grandson Chris Gardner. If you know any more about it let us know.

I have a CD of music played, or likely to have been played on the Titanic and other WS ships of the period. The 1st track is the fake White Star Polka written by Ian Whitcomb. Why they didn’t just include the actual track or else just leave it, or even name the Whitcomb track something else, I don’t know. However, I actually prefer the fake one to the original. Although both are good.
