Subject: RE: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
For those of us interested in traditional song, this is quite important.
It would be better to say for those of us interested in the scholarship of traditional song
i am primarily intersted in singing songs including traditional songs Because the song appeals to me,likewise there are some traditional songs,eg little sir hugh, or drink old england dry, or fathom the bowl, that do not interest me
I agree that songs that appeal to me, i might subsequently wish to get more correct info so scholarship for me is of secondary importance however i agree that scholarship and comments about songs should be accurate, that is why for many years i have gone to other sources other than Bert lloyd for info on shanties and sea songs, sources such as Chris Roche
