chet w Lyr Req: Blue Suede Shoes (Carl Perkins) (39) RE: Blue Suede Shoes 23 Dec 97

Come on guys! I,too, have had trouble finding records, cd's, etc in the local record stores or the specialty catalogs for that matter, but you learn to look under new age for exotic ethnic music and under r&b for blues. It takes a little longer, but no big deal. I will say that one social trend I've noticed is that what we used to call country music, which has not much to do with what's on "country" radio these days, was once largely made by and for people with some connection to a rural, probably agricultural life. Not anymore, which probably explains why the label has changed meanings. But labels always change meanings. Arts have never been widely loved and respected except when they were fashionable. Mozart died broke and was supposedly buried in an unmarked grave. Musicians have always had to cater to audiences. It's a shame but that's the way it is. I think that we who love traditional or whatever-we-call-it music have never had it so good, at least in terms of what's available. Here we are, discussing real thoughts with people all over the world. In a sad world, some things are bright. And to all a good night.
