Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
Captaiun Birdseye: Bob Dylan has always sung songs written by other people. Where you get some of your ideas from, I can't imagine.And really, to claim that a song has "entered the tradition" because fishermen sing it is just laughable. I think you mean , "the songs are popular".
