Thread Name: The worst of folk
Subject: RE: The worst of folk
What I don't like is recordings that appear traditional and are something completely different. 'Course that's just me. If I were to by a recording from a group called "The Morris Men," entitled "Best Loved English Folk Songs," with a version of All Around My Hat done in elaborate, vibrato-laden choreographed 4-part harmony accompanied by the East Twitchingham Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Symphony Orchestra, I'd probably complain. I don't mind these recordings unless I manage to buy them, mind you.

If the Watersons put out "Slade's Greatest Hits," I might complain about that too.
