Subject: RE: lyr.requ. I`am a rover, MacColl

Ah well ... he did grow up in Salford - his attempt to recapture his parent's accents was coloured by different locales ... and the "Lallans movement", which led him to adopt the new name Ewan MacColl!

I think he's trying to be honest ... but he is a different person.
