Enjoying this so much I cannot help sharing. Very good on Topic Records, and a number of other subjects.

Not a bad singer and player either.

Would love to dig into this, but something clearly went wrong when the original word processor document was converted to PDF. The resulting kerning and word-spacing render this difficult to read.

Wish I could help. I've just tried again and not only can I read it I can download it and by some miracle the computer will read it aloud to me if I like. I could also download it to read at leisure off line.

Maybe this route will help you to get to it:

https://theses.ncl.ac.uk/jspui/handle/10443/3720

Or you can search using the title: Sound recording in the British folk revival :ideology, discourse and practice, 1950-1975 Date of award: 2017.

It is very good on MacColl and his modernist theories as well as having useful stuff on Topic Records and the revival generally. A really good discussion of the Radio Ballads and how they were made.

Some comment on the emergence of the folk club as a space, and for me a very interesting discussion about just as a photo isn't simply a record of what was there, neither is a sound recording …

Hope you manage.

I also found the PDF difficult to read, but the text is set so it can be copy-pasted into a word processor document, and changed to whatever font you like.

Sorry both. I cannot make it tricky to read, but I am using a large monitor to do it, and also can easily get the computer to read it aloud using a button at the top of the screen. I am not sure what programme I am using, it opens automatically.

Newcastle, by the way, is where Vic Gammon was based; I think they have done some interesting work there: I certainly rate the stuff by Gammon I have read. And, like Ord, Gammon was also a practising musician as well as an academic.

I hope you enjoy this. I hope it is all right to put 'reviews' of this sort on Mudcat as it seemed to me something worth letting people know about, even though it won't be everybody's cup of tea.

interesting - looking forward to reading this.

I must admit, the last time I looked at a thesis from the Newcastle department it filled me with incomprehension and rage at how they could possibly have been passed it: the writing was so shoddy, the level of presumption so naive and the attitude to research was so lazy.

But at first glance over the first couple of pages, Ord's looks a lot more conscientious.
