Not sure what you are saying Dick, but I am sure the ling has nothing to do with what either Ewan or Charles described

Your constant patronising praise of Ewan's songs when his name comes up indicatesd yo believe his only contribution was as a songwriter
On teh contrary - Ewan and Peggy took time out to work with others to help improve the scene - while the superstars, may of whom snided and knocked them and got on with their on careers   
That work still stands and is unique - I can't think of anybody else who covered it,

I more or less gave up on the English scene when 'The Old Rustic Bridge by the Mill' got a Roud number
