They Really Don’t Make Music Like They Used To

This article from the New York Times is fairly well-written.

It focuses in on the same observations as those in a rather pithy and astute posting made by keller204 in the chatroom earlier this evening:

It's Gammy time? I haven't checked out anything about the Grammys since I was born.

IE - ask yourself if Pink Floyd or The Rolling Stones ever won a Grammy back in the 60s - 70s?

Answer - nominations yes. Wins - to my memory - no.

and then there is this....

Jethro Tull - BEST HARD ROCK/METAL PERFORMANCE VOCAL OR INSTRUMENTAL
Crest Of A Knave 1988 DM - the category seems all wrong to me

Oh yes, David, I agree completely!

Although the timing of the article was inspired by the Grammys, which I also consider irrelevant to anything that any of *us* cares about... there are some observations in that article about music production values, sound quality, and marketing, longevity of well-produced records, etc., which I thought kinda hit the nail on the head.

How's *that* for a run-on sentence, eh? :lol:
