Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
The UK Folk scene needs MacColl right now. I know I have been critical of him in the past, but it needs someone who is prepared to give their time to help others. The only song writers[ imo] who compare, who have a comparable dossier of well writeen songs are Rosselson , and to alesser extent Lowe
MacColl probably saw through Dylan, and possibly saw that commercialism was his Future drectioin , personally I think RayDavies was a better writer than Dylan, in the commercial genre
