Thread Name: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
Subject: RE: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
Amos you have shown clarity of thought and taste. Buffy would be my third choice, what a composer of good music she is though! ..Melanie Safka was my favourite singer of the sixties, but would hardly qualify as a protest singer. Nope, despite sipping the nice rum Larry provided and mulling over the choices of the venerable Mudcat crew I stand with Joan Baez. I think we should have a competition amongst the crew here to choose the best protest song of all time...(judging by the characters here on this thread, it will be the longest contest ever held in Mudcat History) We should nominate three judges to be the final arbiters. What do you say mates anyone up fer it? Yours, Aye. Dave
