Joe & Dave:

Please Please PLEASE take back what you said about Arlo and John. I've always considered them to be the very definition of folksingers. If they're not, then it seems that we need to define our terms. With Mr. Prine and Guthrie being "singer/songwriters", does that mean that we are sticking with a fairly rigid definition of folk music, that the song must have been written by Mr. Traditional, years upon years ago, and then gone through the "folk process" of being claimed and then reclaimed and rewritten every couple of years.

I suppose I can live with that.

By the way, thanks for the answers everyone. Now if you would only be willing to send a small donation, I would love to buy some new CD's.
