GUEST,Murray MacLeod Is Don Mclean a folkie??? (45) RE: Is Mclean a folkie??? 06 Oct 00


Actually I do like a lot of Dougie McLean songs, and lots of Don Mclean songs too. I have seen them both live. and they are consummate performers. ( Don McLean's Martin produced the finest guitar sound I have ever heard )
I just think that they both peaked with one somg and were never able to scale the heights again, unlike writers like Paul Simon, Richard Thompson, Tom Paxton, to name but three at random, who consistently attain greatness in their writing. IMHO, of course. I could be wrong.

Anyway, OLD FOGEYS RULE, OK ?

Murray
