Another list from unSpun
- this time we're ranking the best folk album of all time. Take a look at the list, adjust the rankings to suit your preferences, or even add an album you figure has been unfairly left out.
Personally, i gotta say that i question whether some of thse are " folk" - the Dirt Band's Will the Circle be Unbroken
is definitely what most people would call "country", but someone thought it belonged on the list, and apparently some have voted for it, so...
De gustibus and all that.

Best English Invasion Band?
unSpun is a new online ... thing ... which maintains lists of things for visitors to assign ratings to - sort of an ongoing survey to decide, for instance (as below), the greatest English Invasion Band.
The interesting part is that you are not limited to what the person who created the lkist decided to put in - if, for instance, the Zombies aren;'t on the list, and youthink they should be - you can put them on for others to rate.
You can also create lists of your own, or search for lists - there are localised lists, like "Best Seafood in Atlanta"... Click here to go to the main unSpun site
My interests are broadranging -- comics, music, movies and good ol' science fiction mostly dominate.
My Five Most Favouritest Films are (this week) Once Upon A Time in the West, Dark Star, O Lucky Man, Day for Night
and Whatever I Watched Recently That Was Good. Currently that's Day for Night
