Thread Name: .the Ian Campbell Folk Group
Subject: RE: .the Ian Campbell Folk Group
Ian Campbell wrote a letter to the editor of a major paper (was it the Guardian?) at the time that Tpoic records reissued the Radio Ballads, pointing out that the series included two shows on which he, not Ewan MacColl, called the artistic shots. These "lost" programs were for some reason not reissued. This would have been mid to late 1999. The letter was not published, but the Musical Traditions online magazine (www.mustrad.org.uk) put it up as "enthusiasms #13." He certainly seemed as clear-minded as ever in the letter! That's the last I heard of him, though.
