Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional s
Captain Birdseye told us, in part:

if you read the whole article Peter Kennedy appears to have ,known of Bob Blakes existence and had some inkling he was not a traditional singer,so his judgement and his decision not to record him was not made on merit.

Captain, you've taken two "appears" thoughts and arrived at a conclusion that would not be justified even if the "appears" are facts.

"Known of his existence", if true, and "had some inkling he was not a traditional singer", if true, don't at all require (or even strongly suggest) the conclusion that "his decision not to record him was not made on merit."

The most that could be said is that "Peter Kennedy appears to have known of Bob Blake's existence and had some inkling he was not a traditional singer, so it is possible that his judgment and his decision not to record him was not made on merit" which is a whole 'nother kettle of fish.
