Heck, that's not surprising - there are plenty of MK fans here.  Quite
some time ago somebody posted a 100 best guitarists list, I think it was
from readers of Guitar magazine or something like that.  Anyway, MK came
in a dismal 15th, and several people on the list threw hissy fits about
Now if you go buy that Young Dubliners CD I listed, we'll be 5 for 5! -

Looking through all the "Current Listening" Posts last week, I was
amazed. So much music - so much of it from bands I am unfamilliar with!
Well, We are a global group, and there is a lot of music out there I
have never heard of. I also saw a lot of albums that I have been telling
myself I should get. I also saw a lot of artists that I happen to have
other albums from.
I Decided to see how much I have in common with other listeners. How
much of thier current listening are albums that I actually OWN?  I own
approximately 400 CD's and tapes (maybe 450  this point). Out of 27
people who responed, with 142 albums recently listented to (I might be
off by one or 2 - and excluding myself). I personally own 22 of the
albums listed. Duplicates WERE counted - because I was lazy - if 2
people listened to Oils Blue Meaninie - It still counted twice. 12 of
the albums were non Oils. And the Biggest Winner - Beth Curran - I own 4
of the Last 5 albums she listed -  2 were oils and 2 were Mark Knopfler
related, so it was not a big surprise...
What does this show? not a heck of a lot. There is a LOT of music out
here, and I need to a lot more albums and a much larger CD storage
