Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
Mike Yates using a different perspective, to the one most collectors use ,the one some singers like myself might use.
BobLewis, TheCoppers and GeorgeBelton,all regarded Bob Blake as their equal.
There is an article on Bob Lewis at The Musical Traditions Site where he touches on this subject of the term Traditional singer.,The Article is by Vic Smith.
It is a pity that a collector has to wait till they have committed a mistake[the collecting of revivalist singer Bob Blake],before they can admit publicly,that other traditional singers dont necessarily take the same viewpoint as do some collectors on the above mentioned subject.
