Thread Name: Bertsongs? (songs of A. L. 'Bert' Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Bertsongs?
I can't imagine why Dick thought it necessary to copy-and-paste the entire page here; the bulk of it is irrelevant to this discussion.
in response to phil edwards thread immediately before,to which it is relevant.
secondly, anyone interested in learning, [stewball aka skewbald] to sing,might like to see the alternative versions.
still, I dont suppose that interests the scholars,that someone might want to sing the different versions.
I repeat, Bert did not appear to divulge his motives to anyone now living,so this thread is just idle speculation,which could easily see his doubtful scholarship given too much prominence in relation to his abilty as a performer and his importance in the folk revival.Dick Miles
