Thread Name: I just discovered Joan Baez
Subject: RE: I just discovered Joan Baez
Oops... didn't mean to make people feel old... I more meant it as that I sort of identified with Amy, the thread-starter... when I got into Joan I was about 16 and the music was recorded way before my time, and it's sort of a special experience... everyone around you is listening to stuff like hip-hop or nine-inch nails, and you have this different thing that's all your own. It's an "outsider" experience... kind of a very different experience from what those of you who lived through the 1960's revival era firsthand have known... at least that music was *sorta* popular at that time... now, for people of my age and younger, it's practically verboten...
