    A pretty thin year for me, 1996. Did not like Copperopolis, though Grant Lee Buffalo are one of my faves of the time, this album let me down.

    I left it out! Was cross-referencing the 1995 and 1996 lists simultaneously,
    playing catch up. Grrr.... Well, that's definitely in mine.

    Apart from a few old stagers, the mainstream wasn't throwing up much of interest for me in 1996 but the folk/acoustic scene was undergoing a real purple patch. Anyway, here are my faves:

    Shave The Monkey - Mad Arthur

    REO Speedwagon - Building The Bridge

    Kim Seymour - The Journey Continues

    Fairport Convention - Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

    Fernhill - Ca Nos

    Steeleye Span - Time

    Tanglefoot - The Music In The Wood

    New Bushbury Mountain Daredevils - Urban Hillbilly

    Darden Smith - Deep Fantastic Blue

    Dodgy – "Free Peace Sweet" is one of my favourite albums of the 1990s.

    The Brian Jonestown Massacre produced three differing but strong albums in one year.
    "Take It from the Man!"
    "Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request"
    "Thank God for Mental Illness"

    Sorry. That's the way it was set up in my spreadsheet many many years ago.
    Besides caps make the font look bigger so easier to read for the more mature members on the thread.
