Thanks for that, BH.  The entire quote is even better than Wald's excerpt.  "Guys mumbling" indeed!

That Pat Boone of the blues, B. B. King. - C. R. Wayland, "Robert Johnson And Standards In Blues Criticism", Jazz Journal, April 1963

This is one of those quotes that makes me look at the world from an entirely different perspective.  I wonder if he still feels that way?  Of course, after reading How The Beatles Destroyed Rock 'N' Roll, I don't immediately jump to the equation Pat Boone = very bad music as I would have previously.

A light bulb went off today while taking my daily ciggie break at work in my car. I'm reading Joe Klein's bio Woody Guthrie - A Life. There are good quotes throughout but this one made me stop, think and read it again.

By 1935, he [Charles Seeger] was writing for a small Marxist journal called Music Vanguard that "fine art" music was the property of the dominant classes, for which it was made. Pop music was a bastardization of the "fine art" tradition; it was "crumbs from the table of the rich and powerful . . . combined with various story elements". But folk music was the music of the proletariat and, therefore, inherently progressive.

And as I've been wont to assert; that analysis of the music's importance to the furtherance of progressive ideology is why we're listenin' to it today.

Chezztone, DaveBro's (for it was he) guilty frog vibes quote has been in there since the day he first proposed it! Still cracks me up...

[edit: I just checked and it's not in there. Thought I hadn't seen it for a while. No idea where it went. I will put it back]

"I thought that it was such a privilege for me to be doing those sides with Georgia, that I decided to do everything I could in one bar. Everything I could dream of, I wanted to be sure I got it all in. I was like a dive bomber coming in, playing everything but what she was singing, playing the fastest run I could that had nothing to do with expressing the blues. It was wrong!" - The self deprecating Les Paul on his 1936 recording sessions backing Georgia White
