Subject: RE: Ewan MacColl and Stalin
Oh, the perils of cutting and pasting from a wordprocessor... anyway, you get the gist of the story, despite the ?.

As to being MacColl being dictatorial, if that's a reference to the Ballads and Blues Folk Club policies, go to the Living Tradition's web site (here ), select "Back Issues", and scroll down looking for the Issue 39 "Opinion" by Peggy Seeger for an interesting and relatively recent comment on that topic.

Also, here's a basic bio of Ewan MacColl according to Peggy Seeger, on her web site. And folks might like to know that she's accumulating errata for The Essential Ewan MacColl Songbook (now available) here.
