GUEST,mkebenn@work BS: What is Country? (60* d) RE: BS: What is Country? 28 Jan 01


When I was a kid{oh so long..} there was country and western music. Don't hear the term anymore. I always looked at arrangment and instrumentaion as much as anything in trying to make the distinction here. As Mick said, "Buffalo Skinners" is folk..direct story line, sparse accomp, while "Silver Wings" is country{lush backup}. To muddy the water further, I consider "El Paso", "Big Iron", "Ghost Riders", etal western, not country. Mike Bennett
