Subject: RE: Fairport/Steeleye - unequal respect?

I'll take both, Phil.

I've never liked 'Rave On', probably cos I've never liked the original . I've always loved Tim's dreary voice, same w/ Maddy's , but I wouldn't want the Nursery Rhyme Record no children :. no need perhaps if mum/dad had had it things would've been different.

One thing that has always puzzled me re SS is why Maddy sings a couple of songs w/o changing the pronouns, like 'The Bonny Black Hare' (she seems to enjoy that one, as do I)

That said a little Claire M happily sang "those women will fret, those women will fuss, they spend 5hrs before their glass....." w/o seeing anything strange.

As odd as it makes 'The Bonny Black Hare' sounds it doesn't stop me wishing I was a character in said song though. Ooh!
