Spencer Davis Group Looking Back

This cut, or another version by them, was on the soundtrack of the film "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush," an English production from 1966 or so. It's a good one.

Now this is rock and roll, and the question is: is it art? Is it high art, or low art? Where does rock fit into the art spectrum? How about jazz? Is "Chasin' the 'Trane" art? High art? I think we'd all agree that Beethoven's Ninth is high art. Where do we draw the line?

I don't feel like typing today, but I'll be expounding on this idea soon.
