Subject: RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
No. How he treated the people he collected from is far more important. His failure to regard those people as sensate human beings who made and practised their own artistic culture, and whose lives and sensibilities were reflected in that cluture, undermines just about everything he does.

Regarding Rod Stradling, he was sent an allegedly very poor cassette about and wrote a harsh review of it twenty years ago. That doesn't sound much like axe grinding to me.
