Thread Name: Park records manufactures a folky band
Subject: RE: Park records manufactures a folky band
EmmaHartley, I'm really curious about how you feel about "manufactured" bands. Why is that piece of information important enough to you to start a thread about it? I detect a fair bit of negativity toward the concept of a manufactured band. Why is that? If that's not so, why did you start a thread with that as the most important aspect?

The last band I was in was started by me. I decided what kind of sound I wanted and went out and invited musicians to join. Whenever we needed to replace someone we conducted auditions. I wrote all the originals we did and had the biggest say in our arrangements. Was that a manufactured band? What's the difference?
