EWAN MACCOLL, JOHN BERTRAND

A pair of songs by people with funny accents:


Ewan MacColl

Black & White:the Definitive Collection (1990)
"The Maid Gaed Tae the Mill"
That's English he's speaking. The song is about sex. This song is good for singing along with loudly.

John Bertrand

Early American Cajun Music (1999)
"The Swallows"
Bertrand was around in the 1920s, & I don't think his work can be found outside of various Cajun compilations here & there. The song is in French (I think), it's hard to tell. I love the scratchiness of this track (kinda adds a quaint charm to it), but some might not like how it interferes with the music.


So far, so good.
