Subject: RE: Folk Process - is it dead?
Re: Original versions, since we can't know what 'traditional' originals were like, we can only make comparisons of contemporary song makers.

We know, across the whole realm of music, not just 'folk', that even the composers of works who also perform don't produce identical renditions of a particular piece every time they do it.
