I went to town today nice and early ,walked it as the Sun was shining, got to the train station . No Trains ! So they laid on a Bus ( For I`m a bit of devil and I know that there is no one to check tickets , free Bus !) Got into Town and set off to get the holiest grail of the holiest pair of Jeans 501`s (no holes in knees ) 40 % discount , yep I got them with 26 quid knocked off !!! What a day already ! Next thing I will be seeing a poster of a band I truly want to see live before I go to the great gig in the sky ! Goes in Piccadilly Records to see if they had any Nektar ( sadly not , good job really a bit short since new jeans bought ) Spot a poster on the wall of said shop .
The Mountain Goats playing Manchester !!!!!
Get home , get phone call , game on at the Pub , team wins and go top of the table . What a day !!! The Mountain Goats !!!!
So then here we go for my Folk list Again I have gone 1 per Artist . I have also had a bit of a problem as what is exactly a Folk song . Just acoustic songs ? But I think it be best just to go with what I think are my Fav`s in any shape or form , if you get my drift . (but tried to keep them minimal instruments) OK then .
1. Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - Crosby, Stills and Nash 2. American Pie - Don McLean 3. Fotheringay - Fairport Convention 4. Tangled Up In Blue - Bob Dylan 5. A Case Of You - Joni Mitchell 6. Mc Goohan`s Blues - Roy Harper 7. Heart Of Gold - Neil Young 8. My One True Love - Maria McKee 9. Some Say I Got Devil - Melanie 10. Dun Ringhill - Jethro Tull 11. Silver Dagger - Joan Baez 12. Samuel 15 23 - The Mountain Goats 13. Grantchester Meadows - Pink Floyd 14. So Long Frank Llyod Wright - Simon & Garfunkel 15. 1952 Black Lighting - Richard Thompson 16. Landslide - Fleetwood Mac 17. Universal Soldier - Donovan 18. That`s The Way - Led Zeppelin 19. Half A World Away - R.E.M. 20. A Horse With No Name - America 21. Storm Song - Smoke Fairies 22. Avenue Of Hope - I Am Kloot 23.

Sometimes we are cynical and think they are just in it for the fame and money and have big egos This wonderful film shows that Joan Baez being honest and candid and really did believe that Music could change the world .
Love your number 1 choice Mr Kite. Personally I would have gone with Old Man or Don't Let It Bring You Down for my Neil Young choice but that's just me.
That has got to be the toughest of them all for me . What really is a Folk song ? Just with Neil Young alone was a tough one . Is it folk ? , is it rock ? I think I need to do 100 and throw in as many as you want with one artist , that should do it . I think
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
