Thread Name: Bertsongs? (songs of A. L. 'Bert' Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Bertsongs?
Capatain Birdseye: you explain your motives for singing old songs very eloquenttly, and Like Brian Peters I totally share your attitide. But we are not talking about old songs here. We are discussing the fact that it would seem that Bert Lloyd wrote some completely new songs, and passed them off as old songs. So the picture they give may be be beautiful, but it is a false.He was putting words into the mouths of people long dead and gone.
I expect, Cap'n, you have in your family certain heirlooms. Pictures, letters,other possessions from those of previous generations? Things like that help to make a portrait of our forebears. Now, wouldn't it annoy you slightly if a letter you were led to believe was written by your great-grandfather in fact turned out to be a 1963 forgery?
