Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
"As a result, I suspect that they wrote off or dismissed quite a lot of really good singers,..."

Yep! The BBC really blew it in the 50s, didn't they? After all they failed to collect from such "really good singers" as Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Louie Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald etc., etc. It's a damned good job that several major record labels did the job for them, isn't it?

If you don't have boundaries or categories, Cap'n, life has a tendency to become as absurd as this thread!
