GUEST,Anonny Mouse Most Influential Album? (320* d) RE: Most Influential Album? 14 Dec 05

"A blip on the radar screen"????? Whadda blip. 4 albums in billboards top ten at once which I don't think's ever been equaled even by Prez or Beatles. No one argues there were progenitors not even me. Even said so, wrote so whatever. But that red album with the 3 guys playing Martins and an old SS Stewart banjo WAS the freakin' radar screen that all the other blips flew onto. How can you say that it was not only popular but also majorly influencial? Who the heck ever heard of Lonnie Donnegan here in 1957 0r 58?

I'm not Martin gibson or Taylor Santa Cruz or Guild Larrivvee either. Just happen to be someone who knows a bit of music history in America and folk music particularly-----the POPULAR kind that actually got played on regular radio stations and on campuses and sold out concert halls and lifted everyone else on the rising tide even the skiffle singers and obscuritati. Think Flatt and Scruggs wouldda gotton the Hillbillies gig without the likes of the KT? As for Vega Seegers, yeah there were 109 of them out in the U.S. and then after the KT about 50 thousand. Martin D28s? Same deal.

I don't even know MG but like I said before he is on point in this one.
