Subject: RE: 'Sixties Folk Music' Presentation - Help
Perhaps you had better mention that amongst us old timers,we took a basic controversy very seriously:were some of these groups really cleaned up and popular for commercial reasons?Many people thought at the time that sweet -sounding groups like Peter Paul and Mary took Dylan songs and ruined them. Lots of money but lost honesty. People thought it was the end of the world when he went electic. I did not mind,although I am an acoustic person,I understood freedom at an early age.Parents in the sixties thought Dylan was the end of the world.
