It's all too easy to go back and change something.

I chose Jackie Opel as the best Ska vocalist, but didn't really give the likes of Lord Creator, Lloyd Clarke and especially Shenley Duffus much thought at all Confused

that's the biggest problem with polls. what you're feeling one moment, you might not ever feel again.

i know i change my mind constantly about things.
don't wanna be too 1 dimensional with my thinking.

Cool

These lists are great, giving me lots of album titles to hunt down, also lots of names of artists for me to start checking for.

Its a mine field to know where to start when you are just recently really discovering a genre of music.

Very Happy

SOMETIMES WITH THEESE POLLS YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO GET ALL THE OBVIOUSE CHOICES IT'S TOO SIMPLISTIC , WHILE I AGREE OF COURSE ERNEST RANGLIN IS ONE OF THE GREATEST JAMAICAN GUITARISTS, BUT WHAT ABOUT EARL 'CHINNA' SMITH!? WITH ALBUMS YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO GET A SET LIST THAT PEOPLE FEEL CONSTITUTES WHAT YOUR COLLECTION SHOULD CONTAIN TO MAKE IT THE RIGHT COLLECTION SUCH AS DUB LP KING TUBBY MEETS THE ROCKERS UPTOWN AGAIN CLASSIC GREAT ALBUM, BUT I WOULD SAY MORWELLS
MEET KING TUBBY DUB ME! OR SCIENTIST WINS THE WORLD CUP POSSIBLY! OR THE MESSAGE IN DUB! ARE ALL ULTIMATE CLASSICS Rolling Eyes

Bought a few of Ernest Ranglin around 5 years ago going on the CD sleeve notes saying how good he was, sorry cant see wot all the fuss about found them so monotonous i threw them on the shelf and they gathering dust, I never heard of this guy in the skinhead reggae days in south London , where did he appear from all of a sudden, he was obviously a backing musician on some old tunes, but on what famous ones, don't ever remember seeing any vinyl on him in the late sixty's or seventy's. ??? Confused
