Here's this year's fresh quotes thread. This one is named after a 12 string song recorded in prison by Eugene Rhodes and mentioned in the 12 string players not from Georgia thread.

It was always political?


Sam Charters: We were all committed in one way or another. How many demonstrations did we do to get Pete Seeger on TV? It was all part of the view that America should change. We didn?t sing ?On Top of Old Smoky? because it was a great song, we sang it because we wanted change.
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.

From Bruce Langhorn regarding the early Greenwich Village Folk scene:
?It was one eclectic movement that included a fabulously diverse group of individuals. Some of us just loved to play and sing the music, some of us were into poetry, some of us were into the historical and cultural background of the music, some of us were into the current and historical political implications and applications of the music, some of us were into sex, drugs and alcohol, but everyone was a little bit into everything.?
