"Paul Simon, "clueless as singer". Hmmmmm.Discuss."
It was only the opinion of the poster.
Anyway... reluctant though I am to encourage thread drift, the experience Nic described in that Southern Rag interview was similar to the discomfort I felt when I first heard anyone singing solo unaccompanied, and it took me a long time to get over that. I simply wasn't used to it.
I haven't seen that interview in full, but I'd find that quote far more interesting in the context of what subsequent experience Nic Jones had that turned him on to traditional music and presumably cured him of that embarrassment.
