I’m not good at categorizing songs into classifications listed on MUSIC BANTER so this is only a stab in the dark. Having just listened to all of this I realise most of it sure isn’t anything like Country or Folk. Sorry Kiddies.

Always good to see John Martyn represented on Music Banter, Ayn, and this is as good a place as any to put his music - except that again, I'm afraid, there is already a thread dedicated to good old JM:- https://www.musicbanter.com/general-...hn-martyn.html

(I am a bit of a stickler about keeping MB in good order; I'd say that the majority of members probably care a lot less than I do about these things. None the less, I wonder if I might suggest the "search" function that appears on the top banner of the MB screen. It's not always helpful, though I find the results are much more useful when I use the "show posts" option which it offers.)

John Martyn certainly started out with folk music, but took a lot of liberties with its interpretation! Here's a guy with a more conventional approach who I imagine you've heard of: Lionel Long is not a particular favourite of mine, but he was good at conveying the beauty inherent in some old traditional songs:-



PS: as for recognizing genres of music, I found that I learnt an awful lot just by poking around on MB. In my head, I divide my musical education into two parts: before joining MB and after joining MB.

But who wrote the software for ’show posts’? This gets really complicated.

I also dread missing out on ‘crossover’ music by using such a facility.
I’m reminded of a recent argument over the two Album ‘Trio’ recording with Dolly Parton, Emmy Lou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. I was informed my description of their ‘Blue Train’ track as country meant I knew nothing about country. Maybe I don’t ? Strangly these questions have only reared their ugly head when I puzzle where to post certain music on the forum.

No wonder so many ‘mixes’ sound like someone sandpapering music to death.
Call me a vinyl snob if you wan’t.

I liked the simple set-up, and given that it was a dip into a collection of old singles, I didn't find the crackling of the grooves, full of wind-blown dust and i don't know what else, to be particularly distracting. Nice music, nice shots from the ceiling,though i wish the guy had held the record sleeves up over his head so that we could get a decent look at them.

Zero idea about the MB software, Ayn.

Yes, everyone struggles a bit about putting music in the appropriate category; with many artists/pieces of music there is no "right answer". I always think about MB that enthusiasm for music is more important than expert knowledge, so someone who says "you know nothing about country" is being pretty unhelpful in my opinion.

The endless problem of where to dump a song that is seriously unique?.

This isn’t ‘world’ music but where else should I dump it ?
