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

Hey there Art I'm sorta new at this and this place too-got here by a link someone posted on a guitar site. Anyhoo don't know what the deal is with this martin-gibson fella (he IS a fella?) but seems based on this list of posts he has some history here? Or some people like you don't like him much so as a new person I dunno what im stepping into but at least on this topic I gotta agree with him---didnt think it was a popularity contest vote or something. I haven't had time to weed thru all the other topics, just ones I think I might be interested in, but him (Martin) and me arent the same person ok? I was also a Kingston fan back in the day as you can tell and I can tell you that I didn't know diddlee squat about folk music until Tom Dooley was being played all over the place and every guy in my class wanted to form a folk group and play songs about dying in the coal mines or what hard traveling they'd done, tending them grapes and pickin fruit and cruel wars etc. HAHAHAHA. Anyhow I think a lot more people are like me than not, but maybe not here as some of these thoughts written are obviously from older people than me who were around when the Weavers, Ives and Guthrie were popular and blacklists existed. Missed my time by a few years...I was just a little young and had no idea about them until later when I read up on all this stuff.

Anyhow, seems to be people here get riled up pretty easily when certain people post and there's some history I'm not privy to with some of the personalities. So I'm agreeing with MG on this one although I also go along with the idea that its nearly impossible to pick ONE record that did it all. But I think that first KT album comes damn close!
