I don't like being fooled and misled.

When somebody tells me I'm hearing a historical artifact when, in actuality, they've invented most of it or the most interesting parts of it themselves, that taints the song for me, and the singer too.

Right. My loss.

When Steeleye Span sings Lloyd's "Bring 'em Down," I don't have that problem.

They don't claim to be anything but entertainers.
