Subject: RE: If you don't like ballads......
Just to emphasise the point, I love Steeleye Span's version of "Tam Lin". I once heard someone sing it unaccompanied at a folk club and they absolutely murdered it. The timing was all to pot, the words were garbled and if I was asked what key they sang in I would have to say all of them and more! Yet there are those who would have us believe that the folk club one is somehow better folk music than Steeleye's. It beggars belief.
