Jon Bartlett Taking on the Big Boys? - classic big long ballads (549* d) RE: Taking on the Big Boys? - classic big long ballads 28 Dec 09


I find that the ballad singers I most appreciated (and thus was modelled by) in my youth are not those I listen to now, and vice versa.

For example, pace Bill D., I hear less than I did in Helen Schneyer's voice than I did, much less than I did in Martin Carthy, but more in John Jacob Niles - a total inversion over the years (though I have to say that singing with Helen was a glorious experience!)

Do other singers share this with me?
