Thread Name: Lyr Req: When You Were Sweet Sixteen (J Thornton)
Subject: RE: When you were sweet sixteen - original
I must say that those old time songs often sounded pretty lame when sung by those 50's crooners, Mitch Miller and the Gang, and all those Dixieland revival bands--they are much more interesting to listen to when you hear recordings from the original time, and that has been suddenly made a lot easier now that sites like Virtual Grammaphone are making the MP3 files available--

Since people do learn to play music by listening to recordings nowdays, I think there are going to be a lot more like Orac and Joan, who try to recreate the old sounds--
