Subject: RE: Folk Rush in Where Mudcat Fears To Go
Music stores have sections: rock/pop, classical, jazz, country, r&b, world music, celtic, folk, bluegrass, soundtracks, maybe a few others. Would you look for Metallica in the folk music section?
I don't know how music stores decide what goes where, and I don't always find what I'm looking for where I expected to find it, but I think in general if there is a category for rock and a category for folk, Metallica will be over in rock.
Are there any librarians among us? Is the answer to be found in the Dewey Decimal System, maybe?
