How foolish of me, my apologies for not chosing my words perfectly, and for being interested in what other people's favourite albums are.

I'm sure you know what I meant.

The lists so far make me realize that there's a lot of music out there that I have not yet heard. Oh well, something to look forward to in my old age, I guess.

Too many(countless) impossible to choose. Who knows what the future holds?

The Canadian song voted #1 of all time by CBC listeners was "Four Strong Winds". I'll go along with that.

Were all the CBC listeners clairvoyant?

Based on the lists above, there's clearly a lot more for me to listen to. But my top five albums -- both in terms of influence on me and that I still play frequently -- include in no particular order:

Jez Lowe - Old Durham Road
Christy Moore - Iron Behind the Velvet
Dick Gaughan - Live in Edinburgh
Richard Shindell - Blue Divide
Makem & Clancy - In Concert

Hmmm...as for top five songs, this would likely change with the wind, but at moment:

Little Musgrave - Planxty (from the recent reunion concert DVD)
My Get up and Go - Pete Seeger (Headlines and Footnotes)
Ballad of Mary Magdalen - Cry, Cry, Cry (w/ Lucy Kaplansky on vocals)
'52 Vincent Black Lightning - Greg Brown (The Live One)
Go, Lassie, Go - The Clancy Brothers (Reunion)

Odd that three of those five songs are live versions...

Cheers,

Peter

Thanks Peter,

I've been wanting to get some Dick Gaughan (I only have the one he did with Andy Irvine; Parallel Lines) so I might give that live one a go.

Cheers,
Richard
