Subject: The Ultimate Mudcat Folk an Blues Show

I've just had this light-bulb moment. (That dozen make me a flasher!)

Here on Mudcat we have probably grouped more international expertise (self excluded) on folk and blues music and song than anywhere else on t'internet.

I wonder if it might be fun to compose a Mudcat playlist of iconic recordings through the years, unless this has already been done?

I would suggest that these be items that have really been ground-breaking, both before and after the folk revival.

Initially we should maybe aim for an hour of music, although I could possibly extend that to three on my show.

Anyone up for suggestions? It could make an interesting programme around Christmas time this year? I would be happy to host this on air, but also share it with any other radio presenters in the Mud.

Exclusive I ain't.

Martin Carthy "Famous flower of serving men".
Steeleye Span "Tam Lin"
Led Zeppelin "Stairway to heaven"
John Lee Hooker "Boom boom"
Carlos Santana "Black magic woman"
Jethro Tull "Too old to rock and roll"

Where do you want us to stop?

A hard task. I do not know if any of these songs changed the world, but they all stopped me in my tracks when I first heard them...in no particular order

At Last by Etta James
Red Cross Store by Mississippi Fred MacDowell
Hello Earth by Kate Bush
A Case of You by Joni Mitchell
Seven Yellow Gypsies by Martin Carthy
Swarthfell Rocks by The Watersons
Matty Groves by Fairport Convention
Someone Like You by Adele
Aqualung by Jethro Tull
King Henry by Steeleye Span
Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin
Monster by Kanye West

   Well, I could go on but these come instantly to mind.

Thanks for these. Keep 'em coming.

On a three hour show I can probably fit in about 30 tracks. Whittling down to 30 could be fun.

Someone elsewhere has suggested Alice's Restaurant. That'll need a prog to itself! But it was iconic in it's time.

I'm particularly looking for tracks that stood out like milestones in the folk process, sending it in a new direction, or those that kick-started it.

Perhaps rather obvious, but
The Times they are a-changin' - Bob Dylan
The Sound of Silence - S & G
A Sailor's Life- Fairport
This Land is Your Land - Woody
Byker Hill - The Young Tradition

Hello again, I am sorry, I misread your original post. If you mean folk milestones or recording which brought folk to the attention of the general public, I would have to say that Joan Baez was a great influence in AMerica.
Mary Hamilton by Joan Baez
And who could not credit Pete Seeger
WHere Have All The Flowers Gone by Pete Seeger
And no Doubt at all about Bob Dylan, Imho he changed everyrthing.
The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll by Bob Dylan
John Allan Cameron who brought a celtic tradition off the Island of Cape Breton and into the mainstream.
The Four Marys by John Allan Cameron
In The Uk I would have to say The Watersons
For Pence and Spicy Ale by The Watersons
Frankie Armstrong a huge influence.
The Bonnie Swans by Frankie Armstrong
Martin Carthy a pivotal figure in British folk
High Germany by Martin Carthy


Varous and Sundry
Loreena MacKennit brought much traditional music to public audiences.
The Chieftans..major influence.

Of course we always leave out some hugely important person and our tastes and influences are all different. So each persons list will be different.
An interesting thread, thank you.

...but whatever you do, don't start asking whether any of the suggestions are really folk music :-)

Loreena MacKennitt - absolute magic, I have an official live recording of hers on my music player here in Spain.

For blues, well I suggest John Mayall with Peter Green recorded live at at number of venues in 1967, now officially released but also on youtube!!!
