Thread Name: music critics,do we need them?
Subject: RE: music critics,do we need them?
Singabout August 1987.
playing for time gvr 2382[they cant even print the serial number correctly]its 238.
the reviewer spends a whole paragraph[ten lines] pontificating on why do musicians change direction.
then he shows his ignorance of the subject in the next quote
[theres even would you credit,an attempt at a Lennon MCcartney medley Yesterday/All My Lovingwhich is[ he searches for a charitable word]incongruous on a concertina.
,historically the concertina has been used to play the popular music of the day,so it is not incongruous to play it on a concertina.
this reviewer was amateurish because he displayed his ignorance of the subject matter [the history of concertina playing],further amateurishness, the /magazine/ reviewer printed the incorrect serial number.
printing the correct record number is pretty damn important,if you want to sell any.
