Scrump What IS Folk Music? (132* d) RE: What IS Folk Music? 16 Mar 07

Re. Hey Joe - as well as Love, didn't the Byrds also record it before Hendrix, on an album? My memory could be playing tricks on me, but I thought I'd heard theirs before his (and I did hear his version pretty early on, as it was plugged on Radio London, to which I was a keen listener in those days).

Scrump, frankly, you seem to wish, unlike some of the other contributors to this thread, to have an uninformed discussion.

I'm not saying that, Richard. I'm simply saying I wish that those who would like to have a discussion about this subject, are allowed to do so, whether informed or not, without being insulted or berated for not having read document X or previous Mudcat thread Y.

I wish also that 'informed' contributors like yourself could contribute with resorting to insults. Failing that, I would prefer you and others of like mind to simply ignore the thread. It would have been more helpful, as I said in response to your first posting in this thread, if you could have referred us to the document in question, preferably with a link to a source.

It's not as if previous discussions have answered the question to everybody's satisfaction - if they had, then perhaps you may have a point (even so, you could have expressed it more politely).

I don't want people inhibited from contributing to the discussion for fear of having their heads bitten off by people like yourself who think they are talking rubbish. As for me, I am trying to keep an open mind on the subject, and want to see what other's views are, even if I don't agree with them personally. As I said, there are many people here who weren't party to the original consensus, and you never know, some of them may have valid contributions to make.
