GUEST,Wm Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing (165* d) RE: Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing 19 May 20


Aside from awkward accompaniments, I think many criticisms of Ewan's singing boil down to his frequent presentation of songs as historic documents or examples of a type—a worthwhile pursuit, but not one that best shows the personal connection between singer and song. But I'll happily forgive him his share of clunkers in exchange for Jock o the Side, Are Ye Sleepin Maggie, The Scranky Blank Farmer, The Bold Richard, The Baron of Brackley, and a few dozen more. He's a tremendous inspiration and I'm grateful for the wealth of his output.
