Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk's Memoirs
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk's Memoirs
I always assumed that the term "cover" came not from the singer-songwriters but from the management part of the industry. Or from those journalists who infamously "can't write, writing for people who can't read", etc. The same ones who gave us the abominable "self-titled".
