Like trying to equate newly manufactured furniture with fine antiques. The newly manufacture stuff may be perfectly good, but it remains to be seen how durable it will be. The fine antiques have a provenance, a history, and have given good service for generations.

The Lomaxes knew the difference.

People have been saying for centuries that folk music is dead, but somehow it seems to keep right on going. It's "popularity" with vast numbers of people waxes and wanes, but it will always be there.
