No Blues

It's a well-known fact that contemporary R'n'B isn't really R'n'B. There may be Rhythm, but there's definitely no Blues.

But rather than insisting that this isn't R'n'B music, it's possible to contort the phrase to allow the music to qualify as R'n'B. Firstly, it must be spelt R n' B, with one apostrophe-o'-omission, after the N. This apostrophe stands for an O and the music is Rhythm-no-Blues music.

- Which suits nicely.

Overzealous fastidiousness rears its ugly head once more

I published this entry on 17 July 2004, technically, although it was still really the day before. That means this is pretty old. Beware parachronisms.
