Listened to Fairport's "Tam Lin" a few months ago for first time in Ages. Was horrified. All those instrumental breaks getting in the story's way! And I used to love that track. Hearing Frankie Armstrong's version some years later has maybe spoiled me for any folk-rock versions. A ballad is a story. Still love Sandy's voice tho. And I always loved Steeleye's "Thomas the Rhymer". It just works..
