Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
no, not entirely little hawk, for a song to be good is not just a question of taste.
if a potential song writer goes to a song writing workshop, he will learn that there are certain highest common factors that occur in all well written songs.
Ewan MacColl was a trained playwright this imo would have been a help to his song writing,Ewan also understood stage craft[ possibly/probably through his involvement with the theatre.
MacColl undoutebdly analysed dylans songs.
