Jim Carroll If you don't like ballads...... (252* d) RE: If you don't like ballads...... 07 May 19

"I disagree about Steeleye Span, Jim, but each to his or her own. In my opinion, "
I have no doubt you do Dave
You need to work out what ballads do to appreciate them
They are word-based stories stripped down to the bare bone - very little description, very little commentary - just plot
If you cough and miss a word you can losee the whole ballad - if you have to climb a wall of sound to hear what is being sung, you don't stand a chance
You keep using teh term "boring" - I can't remember being bored since I wass a teenager - lucky I guess
