Geoff has posted 3 times in this thread but has not voted. He made a p=
ost in the last group to say that he wasn't gonna vote. Not sure what's up.=
Maybe he has stopped voting all together because I won't agree to prearran=
ge the matchups like he proposed?
The gap in music taste is significant, which means that my votes genera=
serve to slightly distort the results of the round-group contests in th=
So I've stopped voting for 50s Obscures.
Geoff, don't do this to me. I was counting on your vote helping my nomina=
tion of" All My Love Belongs To You." :-)
But I do understand your frustration, probably more than most.
Look, I was pissed at some of the results of Roger's battles. Particularly =
with some shitty Nat King Cole pop record (Mona Lisa) beating out all the g=
reat R&B of that year
OTOH I was pleasantly surprised that the great "Mona Lisa" won
(almost) all around acclaim from the contest participants that year
and ended up as #1 but there were also three non-r&b country records
that made up the Top Four best performing records of 1950 courtesy of
Hanks Snow and Williams. Fats Domino came top for r&b at #5 with "The
Fat Man" of course.
"Mona Lisa" came thisclose to winning the later pop battle too beaten
only by The Platters and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes".
Very popular record around these parts!!
but I never even considered not voting anymore.
This I fully agree with. I'd feel just the same in the event of
something I disliked winning a contest I took part in
"Spam Free Zone" - to combat unwanted automatic spamming I have added
an extra "b" in my e-mail address (***@bblueyonder.co.uk) Please
delete same before responding.Thank you!
