I agree with Bob, his song writing, the time and effort he spent assisting others, his professional approach to performing were all huge positives.I thought he sang his own songs better than some of the trad songs, but that of course is debatable and only opinion
- However Peggy Seegers contributions to the musicansship of their perfomances as a duo and in the radio ballads, plus her own excellent songwriting abilty and good singing and instrumental performance tends to be overlooked
