Anglo Origins: His Name Is Andrew (David Ackles) (24) RE: Origins: His Name Is Andrew (David Ackles) 15 Apr 11


Unfortunately I don't have David Ackles' original recording. Reinhard, I find your critic's comments totally and unnecessarily critical, even malicious and quite possibly racist. Is the BNP at work here? Your contributions to Mudcat are always useful and germane (not quite a pun ;-) and I am sure many of us, including myself, always appreciate them.

I have just listened to Landfall and I will add a couple of small comments. In v.1 Martin does sing "And he heard them say...". He went through a phase when he was articulating the "h" and it sounded hard. Listen for example towards the end of the song when he sings "from the dark he heard...". The "heard" has that same hard beginning consonant. I have made several errors in transcription listening to him do that.

In v.2 I suggest that he sang "He lived in a world of no sense." "Innocence" might be the original but that's not what Martin sang. I can't check.

I'll take this opportunity to thank you for your website, which I consult extremely frequently for all sorts of reasons. Thank you for your contributions.
