Genre?[edit]

Behind That Locked Door is the only song classified as country on this album while the other acoustic numbers fall into folk rock (according to all their pages)...why is country and western listed as one of this album's genres? Jackbel (talk) 09:25, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

I know what you're saying, Jackbel, but it's for the simple reason that we have to adhere to the requirement of an author actually spelling out that "this album is [genre] and [genre]." It's unfortunate – or rather, it's unfortunate that some editors feel the need to police the requirement to ridiculous lengths – because we end up with album articles where readers think, uh? this album's not that genre. I do the same with a few wikipedia album articles.
The inclusion of C&W here comes from the conclusion to Simon Leng's chapter on the album, where he writes: "That the final product covers gospel, hard rock, country and western, Motown, and everything in between serves as a reminder of [Harrison]'s versatility as a musician and producer." To me, what's currently there is way better than having just "folk rock" (as we had before), but it means that everything from this comment of Leng's, even when C&W is represented by only a single song, has to be included. Even down to the term "country and western" rather than "country".
If you've got a better group of genres instead, supported by a decent source, then go for it. I put a lot of work into this article and the song articles, but you know, I'd actually be happy to see the genre field blank, after all the tedious discussions above and on user talk pages.
