Subject: RE: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
The big deal in his case is not really the matter of differing opinions. What we're dissecting here are individual cases, in order to learn just how far his interventions went. For those of us interested in traditional song, this is quite important.
And I'm just not reading all that much disagreement here on that front. This most recent bump is a mutual admiration society v. Dick on ends justifying means and how disclaimers are a good thing.
As for Policy, believing local restrictions improved selection, variety and choice of maritime work song in folk clubs is not math or science based. Political Science... maybe. If any so-called tradition requires a formal, regulated performance environment to continue, it needs more academic disclaimers than a gen-u-wine LLoyd sailor song.
