This is a spin-off from the "What Did You Do in the War, Ewan?" thread.
Three very different renditions of the same song (I couldn't find one with MacColl:)
Rather than argue about the alleged crabbiness, cowardice, Communism, snobbishness, pretentiousness, co-optational insolence, etc., of various singers and musicians, it might be more interesting to think about these performances - how they differ, why, and why we like them or not.
Personally, I think they're all great, but that's just me. My favorite and why? I ain't saying.
(Thanks, SO'P, for calling the Phil Tanner clip to our attention.)
