and james blunt on t'other side

a latter day Chris de Burgh ??



Back to the plot

Was it me or did Martin Carthy struggle?

Was Roy Harper getting carried away

Where was Ralph Mactell with 'One too many mornings'?
i used to hear him do it every week at the half moon Herne Hill, and G Gil. Only a handful of us present @week

oops drifting

i cant understand why most of the performers sang one (sometimes more!) of their OWN songs!!! Its supposed to be a Dylan tribute concert, not a showcase!!!!

I think Mr C was not at his best. Too musch beer at Whitby possibly making Scarborough Difficult.

This was an edited version of the Barbican of a few weeks ago. Carthy's voice is gone, Bragg never had one. The young American kid was a disgrace, Roy Harper was worse. That only left the girl and Odetta who were excellent. What a shambles of a shower of crawlers using Dylan to show off their own lack of talent.

I agree Odetta and KT Tunstall were both excellent.

Peace

Ahh breezy, I just looked, it was only an hour... the one I saw was the full 2 hr thing on BBC4, wish I'd taped this one now!

Yeah, on the full one, the young American kid did a not-bad version of "To Ramona" but then bored me with 2 of his own songs.

Actually, I liked Martin Carthy, even though his voice wasn't at its best, I still liked the performance of "Hattie Carroll" and I even liked Scarborough Fair, had no objection to that seeing as Dylan borrowed the lyrics for Girl from the north country

but it was the other people doing their own songs that got up my nose! it made it not so much a Dylan tribute concert, more a showcase, with people sometimes doing Dylan songs.

PAH!!

but I completely agree with KT Tunstall - she was brilliant, and also ONLY DID DYLAN SONGS... which is what everyone should have done for gods sake!!!
KT Tunstall is indeed a very talented artist.

I only saw the full 2 hour programme, and agree that KT Tunstall was excellent - made to look even better by the dross that preceded her!

Have bought KT's CD on strength of her performance - it is very good in my opinion.
