Subject: RE: McColl or harry Lauder
Here we go again! EM/JM grew up with Scots parents and sang to him in a Scots accent and he learned loads of songs from them - surely this is common knowledge by now?

What was he supposed to do/ Sing them in Salfordese? The rhymes don't work for a start and some of the words don't translate.

Ok he did use a range of accents and I have to confess that one of the most important people in the Revival was to caught out on that. I have to say I found the recording funny and claerly not a patch on almost everything else he did.
