Yes, most of those you cite were indeed active during my favorite period.

Bob Wills started in the mid-1930s but remained active through the 1960s at least. His prime is generally considered to be...

In so many words, I've made this statement so many times over the course of 55+ years of loving music.

Yes, you want to "grow," but what are you growing to? It may feel good to you as an artist...

It may be a little more hip to like Tim's later, more experimental stuff, but I'll stick with his most evocative period, which for me would be Happy Sad and Blue Afternoon.

In my college days,...

I have no idea where you think you're going with this.

Please quote a passage from any of my posts in which I said I like EVERYTHING from the 1948-1956 era. Then, when you've failed at that,...

I'm merely stating the era I like best. I'm not stating that I don't like anything outside of that era. Out of the '57 era you mention, only Johnny Cash was truly country, though the others dabbled...

As my post above states, in my view there's not a thing wrong with 50s country that was recorded well (the examples I gave). It's actually the Chet Atkins era forward where the production becomes a...

Good analogy, actually, and it's part of my justification for choosing the 1948-56 era.

Chet Atkins is a superb guitarist. And I know some will argue that his "big productions and smoother sound"...

Am I the only one who thinks country's best era was 1948-1956?

Yeah, I know, there's good country music to be found in any era if you dig for it a little. But when it comes to the years I mentioned, you usually get a token nod toward Hank Williams, and not much...

Malvina was a bit of an anomaly in the folk music world of the 50s and 60s, in that she was a white-haired, grandmotherly type when she broke on the scene. She wrote "Little Boxes" in 1962 when she...
