I don't think GUEST quite grasps the idea. For all the BS threads, Mudcat and DT are fantastic resources. If I'd had access to resources like this back in the Fifties, I could have Ruled The World! (But then, of course, so could everyone else.) Nevertheless, if one is interested in just goofin', one can do it here. It's kind of a fun place. If one is interested in some pretty heavy scholarship involving folk music, music in general, or a variety of other subjects, this is a pretty good place to start. If someone can't tell you exactly what you want to know, they can usually point a direction in which to look, complete with links. Lots of very knowledgeable people hang out here.
Trash Mudcat all you want if that's how you get your giggles, but I'm in it for the long haul.
