I should mention though, in my first year at university especially, that trend of conformity actually went backwards! I remember people getting their hands on music that was completely different from their normal stuff. Used Beatle CD's were very popular--and 80's

Of course, the nature of fashion is to outmode the old with a certain amount of belittlement, because this will insure a following for the new. The general nature of fashion is also superficiality. Real quality is on a different level and it ignores the blows of fortune.
Call it grampy music if you want, but my Strat-bangin' teenager has a respectable CD collection of the cream of that era, including the Beatles, and no, I didn't push it on him at all. With him it's more that mere principle. I give him a pointer or two, but he's schooled himself into all of it right up to today's better stuff. If it sounds good, it IS good, hourglass or no hourglass. Ask megs!
