I used to love "Sing Out" magazine in the mid-60s. The articles on singer/songwriters in particular used to excite my imagination. There was one particular issue ( circa 63/64 ) with a feature called ( I think ) " Something new is Happening", and was devoted to Dylan, Paxton, Ochs etc. I loved that article. Heavens knows where my copy went to, but I'd love to see that article again. Back then I was a big fan of Mark Spoelstra's, -remembered now mainly as a Greenwich Village buddy of Dylan's - but I think he was an outstanding artist in his own right. I wrote to him a couple of years back, and got a lovely, friendly reply.

Don't have the Sing Out issue in question, but also like Mark Spoelstra. Great 12 string guitarist. Caused me to go out and buy one and then get rid of it because I never did get that clean a sound from it.

Sing Out still sets the standards for folk music magazines. And now they include a CD with all of the songs that are published.

That Muddy sound that often goes with a 12-string was one of the reasons I went to a 9-string. My hands were going numb back in the 1980s from MS (undiagnosed then) and I thought I would be strumming more and picking less---more sound for less work sort of I thought. With three single bass strings 6,5, and 4 and double unison 1,2 and 3 I did what Big Joe Williams had done to his guitar (sort of). Well, it "sort of" worked for me. Later I went back to 6 strings when I couldn't push 'em down at all hardly.------------ But I know what you're saying. (Sorry for the thread creep.)

SING OUT! is a must read for me now as it was in the 1960s. I love the CD of all the songs featured in a given issue that comes with each issue now for an extra nominal fee. I do wish there was less mod singer/songwriter navel gazing music there-----as well as less World Music. That's not wrong. Just not to my taste. (I prefer folk music ! ;-) **LARGE SMILE** Uniquely, another magazine I subscribe to, THE OLD TIME HERALD, is seemingly more open these days to revival singers that did trad. type music. I can point to a feature article on the late banjo picker and singer Derroll Adams in the last issue. Very nice to see.

But MARK MOSS, editor of Sing Out, is doing an amazing job of juggling the myriad styles, egos and personalities as well as the many expanded definitions of this thing we call "the folk world" now.

Reading this thread just gave me a jolt of reality. I, like Art, am generally not fond of some of the modern "folk" music.

But, when I read about the wanted Sing Out story, featuring all the young whippersnappers who were being lionized then - Dylan, etc., I realize it really is generational discrimination. I was willing to accept them when they were my age - but probably wouldn't give them a second listen now! Yep, my broad mind and narrow waist have certainly changed places !! Oh, I got the Geritol Blues.

Me too !! Now, a pill that does lip-o-suction----that'd be something good. Even better than Viagra.
