Ed Jones Lyr Req:Jock Hawk's Adventures in Glasgow (MacColl (52* d) RE: McColl or Harry Lauder-Jock Hawk's Adventures 27 Jan 11

Hoot is correct. I started this thread to underline the hypocrisy in dictating folk singing styles. Andy Stewart, the White heather Club and Harry Lauder were all considered laughable by the folkies and yet a very funny song done in a very funny accent, not as good as Andy Stewart's, doesn't 'not a smile flickered ' across MtheGM's lips(by his own admission.) I'm not anti McColl as has been suggested but surely he is not beyond criticism? I have listened to most of his work and on balance his good work far outshines his bad.
Give yourself a tonic, shrug off the corsets and have a good laugh.
