Yes, of course Peter used "source material". Has anybody suggested otherwise? He rarely left that material unchanged, though; so, though there is indeed nothing wrong with that (particularly when people say what they've done, especially when they are influential and others are liable to copy them) you can't use his recordings as evidence of anything that precedes them. You need to go to his sources for that. Why do people find that simple proposition so difficult to understand?

Thanks for telling us that Peter used a different tune for Ward (but from where? Edwin was found all over the place). I haven't heard the recording, and Roberto didn't see fit to mention that rather important detail. Reinforces my point rather.
