"You hear these songs, and they?re incredibly moving. But when we talk about it as being raw or authentic, it discounts just how hard this stuff was to play and how musically sophisticated and innovative it was. There?s a sense of almost remarginalizing it by talking about it as this primitive music that sprung up in the cotton fields, when in fact, it?s incredibly skilled and impressive music".

Forgive me if you've heard this one before (alas I am new here and have not yet read back on all of the material)... but this one is a perpetual favourite of mine that I use especially in all kinds of forums where people don't know what they are talking about when they talk about "Blues":
