Subject: RE: right-wing 'folk'
"The Terror Time" is perhaps an exception, Jack: as indeed are many of the songs from the Radio Ballads, which I eulogised practically unconditionally in the first article I ever wrote for Folk Review (Sept 1972): -
"It is not too much to say," I concluded, "that The Travelling People is one of the great contributions of modern art to tolerance and understanding."
Perhaps, as Matt implies above, one must take into account distinguished sf writer Theodore Sturgeon's 'Law Of Science Fiction':— viz "90% of science fiction is rubbish, because 90% of everything is rubbish." But I still wouldn't give that dime-a-dozen for the vast majority of all that 10-a-week-minimum tendentious bathos at that.
