Charlie Driggs (originally posted by Charlie Driggs on Jan 12, 2010) This is far away from a Best-of-list; just a snap-shot, because many recommended or promising songs/albums are not available. The last days I listened to some exciting stuff from Africa and the Carribean, but it's almost impossibl...

Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 1950, 1951 and 1952

Hi Amers: I'm going to transfer the information from the old Forum to new Forum of the 1900-1969 polls with different approaches, I'll use an abreviated approach with the yearly lists (only the personal lists alphabetically ordered and some comments) and then a complete approach including the comple...

The Spotify playlist , only lacking the Ahmad Zamir song and (as nicolas pointed) with an edited version of Na Ruk Te Hai Aanso. Wow, this week looks like a duel! Nusrat vs. the Shankars...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup Poll special edition

Many thanks, Dan, Zorg and Gillingham for your kind words. This encourages me to write the second and third parts (right now I'm more tempted to write the third part, the "pivotal names", but I will decide later).

AM Foreign World Cup Poll special edition

I was playing with this idea since the beginning of this game and I was planning to post it at the end of Round 1 (for not influencing anyone votes) but I simply can't hold it no more. I'm not pretending to post a list with the best musicians of the world, I simply wanted to highlight some musicians...

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 1990

Sorry nicolas but I haven't found the time to listen again to the songs and albums on the list I posted back in 2007 and (what's even sadder) I haven't listened the albums and songs of the other voters. That's a thing I deeply regret because that's something I truly enjoyed on past editions. So I'm ...

Wow, what a week! And last week was fantastic too! I told you before about the great songs on the Western Africa part but probably the Caribbean ones are even better. They are pleasant songs, easy to listen (and I do not mean "easy listening"), songs that put you in a good mood. I've already listene...

Hmm ... Silvio Rodríguez has never been my cup of tea. (In fact, I had nominated a song by Pablo Milanés). Perhaps for the same reason as you, Hon: he was the typical singer-songwriter who liked to the "liberals" in general (using the expression of the Anglo-Saxons. In Spain liberal means the oppos...
