Thread Name: Help: 'The Devil's Music'
Subject: RE: Help: 'The Devil's Music'
For many years I lived in the heart of the American southwestern Bible Belt, going to school tight next door to the world's largest Ba[tist seminary. We all knew without asking. In the 50's, the devil's music was that evil black folk's music that grew up in bars and brothels. Then when Elvis came along and shook his hips, that setteled everything. It all depends on what period the lady's talking about, though, doesn't it?
