This date 1989.

Yes, there are plenty of MacColl beaters out there but he did leave us some great songs and deserves to be remembered.

Woody Guthrie may have penned "put your finger on your ear" but Ewan raised it to an art form.

Yes a great man and a great artist and songwriter.

Out of interest, when did he become Ewan MacColl, and stop being the other chap?

Al - see if you can get hold of a copy of Ben Harker's "Class Act" he explains it pretty well in there.
