Hi Craig: and all:

I believe that Rap (Which by the way I do not like either) is just a new 
version of what the record industry used to call "Spoken Word" category and Phil 
Harris could well have been one of the guys who started it, though I doubt it.

I think Roger Whitaker from Canada would also be a candidate for this kind of 
recordings, as would a lot of other so called singers.  Some of Willie 
Nelson's songs would fit this description as well.

I like to think of the rappers as street corner poets with no money to hire 
musical accompaniment.
