GUEST,john f weldon what is old-timey music? (95* d) RE: what is old-timey music? 17 Apr 08

I prefer defining musical categories broadly; the hair-splitting can make you squirm. I have an old folkways collection of "OTM" that includes both Jesse Fuller and Doc Watson.

I think of it as "music that sounds like it's always been around."

In those old Biblical movies they always have pretty heavy orchestral music on the sound track, but I suspect if you travelled back in time, you'd find they were listening to "Old Joe Clark."
