The Weavers

The Weavers Reunion at Carnegie Hall.......Who actually listens to this crap? I am not talking about the sound quality, I am talking about the music itself. I own one of the approved audiophile pressings and I just don't get it.
There are different musics for different audiences. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it is crap. I like Weavers much better than many of the modern performers who seem to be in a race to see who can scream louder. But many people like them too. So just enjoy what you like. There is no need to trash what you dislike.

I'm a Weavers fan. I can see how it feels "fluffy" to those used to more modern sounds, but...

Their music develops tremendous momentum exclusively from vocals and acoustic stringed instruments. The rhythmic urgency feels (to me, anyway) like it underlies a lot of the music that came out of the rock movement and the tonality presages a lot of country music. I also think that the vocal harmonies are beyond great. I find many of those old traditional folk bands forward looking in that respect.

Clearly not everyone's cup of tea (and definitely a reach for hard rock types), but I find that there's a lot to like for an open minded fan of contemporary popular music.

More often than not one can ascertain the maturity of some people by their provocative and/or inane forum posts even though you don't know them from Adam.
