GUEST,Anonny Mouse Most Influential Album? (320* d) RE: Most Influential Album? 12 Jan 06

Well fellas (or gals) this is gettin' to be like bashin the ol' head against a brick wall-it feels so good when ya stop. No doubt some of you know from yer books and histories whatcha know. Pointless to keep this little argument/debate going. I'm not changing yer minds-and you're not changing mine. Plenty of salient points made from all sides; I made mine-you made yours. I know what I know, and observed and lived through it here stateside. That first Trio album deserves most influencial--THEY may have not been the be-all, end-all of folk music commercial or otherwise--but that album started a phenomenon, and who came before whom or whatever is all well and good, but they didn't have THE ALBUM. Or the albums that followed.

So, I'm takin' my leave of this now as it's been beat into the dirt plenty enough and you regulars and "GUESTS" can write what ya want. But I did enjoy all the pots that got stirred, learned a few things, got some nice references, and did some reading. Maybe I'll go off and wail hang down your head, Tom Dooley on my front porch, or hoist one to Bob, Nick and Dave. Catch you on another thread I'm sure. Now-don't go taking this as some kind of surrender, 'cause it isn't. Just that enuf's enuf-and we probably hit that 150 posts or so ago. LOL!!!!
