Vic Smith Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing (165* d) RE: Critical discussion of Ewan MacColl's singing 20 May 20


Dick -
well Vic , the reason it doesnt restrict her singing is that it was afterwards, yes it is superflous ,but i was only trying to say that it did not force or restrict her singing. of course it would not if it was done after. peter kennedy i suppose that was one of his tricks, the sort of caper he got up to. the bounder

As far as Hall and the Collector releases are concerned, it was almost certainly the work of Peter Kennedy

As far as McRae and the American release on Riverside, I very much doubt that Kennedy had anything to do with it. If I were asked to name a suspect, I would suggest Goldstein was probnbly (and inadviseably) trying to make Jeannie's singing more accessible to the American market the album was aimed at. This is no more than an informed guess on my part.

.... and calling PK a 'bounder' is probably more polite than any word I would use to describe his unseemly activities. He was, however, the most successful and determined British collector of his time and I am eternally grateful for the recordings that has left behind. It is a dilemma - like another figure, his legacy is much discussed a good while after his death.

Starship -
the guitarist/singer's name is spelled Josh MacRae.
Correct - and you are are right to point it out. I did know that but as is indicated by the indentation in my post this is a direct quote from the album's booklet notes. When making a direct quotation, I never alter the spelling or grammar of it.
