retro-quotes: a series of germane remarks, by others, plucked from all over the place, and from all over the time - #19

"Any kind of popular trend is infinitely more wholesome than listening to old records. It’s more important that people know that some kind of pleasure can be derived from things that are around them—-rather than to catalogue more stuff-—you can do that forever; and if people aren’t going to have a reason to change, they’re never going to change"

--Harry Smith, interviewed in Sing Out! April & July 1969
