The Dumb Sound

Al Aronowitz, Saturday Evening Post, August 1963

2003 note: The following was trimmed down to fit in the pages of the Saturday Evening Post by Bill Ewald, one of the few editors whose genius we salute. Ewald's bosses had little regard for pop music, however, and were delighted to be able to call what they printed "The Dumb Sound."
