Thread Name: Park records manufactures a folky band
Subject: RE: Park records manufactures a folky band
Okay, for the big question. Two big questions, actually. They are, without my being at all sure which of them should come first and which one second, (drum roll)>>>>>>>

1) Is "authenticity" a meaningful word, that is, is "authenticity" even possible, when referring to a "folk band" at this point in human cultural evolution?

2) If the answer to the above question is "Yes, authenticity can still exist," then is it possible for any of us, immersed as we are in the Spectacular situation, could possibly recognize it?
