Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Yes, Jim, Ewan's family obviously believed it but by the time he wrote his Journeyman article (1988?) I would have thought his research into folk song would have shown him otherwise. Like you, no doubt, I don't take anyone's word as gospel and I have found some celebrated source singers to be very unreliable ..... trawling through the tapes in the School of Scottish Studies in Edinburgh is a real eye opener!
