Subject: RE: Who should sing who else?
Speaking of Garth Brooks, I think he would do a fine job on several of Stan Rogers' songs (Field Behind the Plow, Lies). I love other people's versions of Richard Thompson songs. The problem is more with some of Thompson's fans who can either slam a version of a song because it's not like Richard's, or criticize a version for being too much like his, except not pulled off exactly right (face it, who can match the guitar solos?)
