Thread Name: Fairport/Steeleye - unequal respect?
Subject: RE: Fairport/Steeleye - unequal respect?
Flippin' 'eck, The, you're far too old to get into that spurious comparison malarkey, innit! Maddy Prior and Sandy Denny both have/had voices that are out of this world, given the right material. Vive le difference, say I.

As for June Tabor, she does grim better than anyone. Sometimes I like grim. But not that much.

By the way, one of the very best Steeleye efforts (for 'twas that in all but name) was "My Very Favourite Nursery Rhyme Record" which actually went under the guise of Tim Hart And Friends. It was the soundtrack of my two kids' childhood and it's utterly, unaffectedly, uncondescendingly fabulous! Buy this for your kids and they'll love you for it forever. Mine are in their 30s now and they wouldn't be without their copies. Or just buy it!
