GUEST,Jim Carroll how important is the label traditional singer? (254* d) RE: how important is the label traditional singer? 25 Sep 07

Dick Greenhaus's summation is spot-on.
Pat and I record traditional singers because we wish to try and understand the tradition, therefore we go to those who we believe to have the information we require. There are a whole raft of reasons to collect and it is up to the individual collector (and not a professional singer making a living out of the music) to judge where we should work and who we should record.
Incidentally Cap'n, if you are going to quote me, please try to do so in context - I know it's difficult, but it would be appreciated.
