Subject: Big Al Whittle needs your vote
From: Big Al Whittle
Date: 12 Dec 11 - 07:32 PM

Really need YOUR help.
A song of mine has made the last fifty in a BBC song competition which the great Terry Wogan has lent his name to, namely Oldie Composers. A competition for songwriters who are a bit long in the tooth.
Voting for me costs nothing and my song is number 38 on this page.

http://www.oldiecomposers.com/TOP50.html

You can only vote once.
If you are consumed with interest to find the nature of a song that confers such greatness, you will find it here.
http://www.bigalwhittle.co.uk/id62.html


Remember folks this is the one that could catapult us all to stardom!
Love Al
XXXX

Al, you have such amazing talent and heart- both as a songwriter and as a musician - one of the very best among the songwriters and musicians that frequent Mudcat - and that is saying something.

You got three votes from my three e-mail addresses.

Done -- although I feel a little guilty voting for your song without listening to all of the others (I did listen to about 30 of 'em -- not all of 'em to the end, though! A few were also very good, but after listening to most of the others, I really appreciated how well-crafted yours is...)

Congrats on making it to the top 50 (no mean feat in itself, I assume) and good luck!

Though like the previous poster I didn't listen to many of the others,so it's probably going to be a question of who can get all their matesand facebook friends to vote - might have been better to get a panel to reduce it to around half a dozen then go over to the public vote.

Yay! Let's all vote for DCI Big Hearted Al Whittle of the Popularist Branch of the Folk Constabulary who craves your collected adulation whilst gleefully stomping all over the hard work of others and then has the neck to whinge about lynch mobs...

If can't show any respect then keep to your own manor (and era), Universal Soldier.

I wonder why?

"Despite the abuse heaped on me in this thread I have no bitterness towards you - more sort of compassion." (BAW, 8:49am)

I like the songs you sing, Al. They're clever and funny - so unlike the persona you present here. With compassion like that, who needs a vote?

The persona I present here is one of fierce intelligence. I am trying to engage with other people who say they are interested in folk music as an artform.

Theres no bluff. I am a nice person and I have given help and assistance to everyone I've ever met whenever I can. Even if their view of stuff is diametrically opposite to my own beliefs. My Quaker upbringing - I realise I don't have a monopoly on the truth.

if I can help you Ross in any way, let me.

However somewhere folkmusic has gone wrong. Eliot called it disociated sensibility when it camto English poetry. poems in the 1890's were being written in this grossly sentimental way -poems about Highwaymen and dark Angels in age of atheism and railways. A bit like this 'in the tradition' mush, that we're being force fed as folk music. Its nowt to do with us earth folk.

Ground Control to Planet Folk Music.....! the circuits all gone dead! Can you hear me Major Martin?
