Dr John Biggest waste of Vinyl, Tape or CDs (116* d) RE: Biggest waste of Vinyl, Tape or CDs 27 Mar 99


We're getting w a y off the folk/blues area with many of these artists; although I have seen the Beatles describes as "folk" in recent times ie anyone with an acoustic guitar. There's only one performer whose painful droaning has made me turn off "Folk on Two" (bring back ... etc) and I'm hardy enough to sit through James Taylor and that's Pete Morton. Dreadful. Can't tell the difference between Guthrie and Dylan. For a start his name was Guthrie! WG's song sound as fresh today as they did when they were recorded as that's getting to be a long time ago now; perhaps because they chronicle a time, the poetry is brilliant and they're full of biting humour. Dylan's stuff is just winging doggeral which might just as well have come from the bee bop a lula merchants. His better stuff is just Guthrie phrases cobbled together.
