Thread Name: Your top ten folk albums
Subject: RE: Your top ten folk albums
Lessee....not in order of quality, or any other particular order....

1) Ian Tyson, Cowboyography

2) Tom Russell, Song of the West

3) Doc Watson, Doc Watson (first Vanguard album)

4) Joan Baez, Joan Baez (first Vanguard album)

5) Utah Phillips, Good, Though

6) Ian and Sylvia, Northern Journey

7) Stan Rogers, From Fresh Water

8) Dry Branch Fire Squad, Live at Last

9) Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin, Heart Songs/i>

10 (Left open, because it should be one by Norman Blake, but I can't think of one album I like to the exclusion of the others)

The above demonstrates that:

1) I am very old.

2) I have a very loose concept of what "folk music" is.

3) For a patriotic U. S. citizen, I have a pronounced weakness for Canadian singers.

But I could have told you that.
