Thread Name: Which has been the best decade for music
Subject: RE: BS: Which has been the best decade for music
Difficult to answer such a broad based question. Certainly if one is talking the folk singer/songwriter, the 30's, 40's, and 50's. think Weavers, Leadbelly, Odetta, Gutherie, Seeger, Ritchie. If you are talking experimenting with old forms in new music, it's hard to top the 60's where blues, baroque, folk, rock, classical all blended in to create exciting new sounds. Think Left Banke, Buffalo Springfield, Blood Sweat and Tears, It's a Beautiful Day, Creedence Clearwater, The Byrds........ it was just a time of experimentation. Talk the Folk Revival and the late 50's and early 60's come to mind. Again, Ritchie, Seeger.......... I mean it just goes on and on.
I just don't know how to answer this one.
All the best,
