This isn’t necessarily my Top 10 favorite albums but 10 albums which influenced my musical taste. The first on the list- Hank Williams’ Greatest Hits was an influence because growing up the first music I was exposed to was the country music my dad liked. Luckily he liked classic country artists- Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Merle Haggard and especially Bill Monroe. Looking back at the music he played it was all great stuff. He wasn’t at all into rock or pop music it was all country. I have wondered at times what if he had liked music that was well – crap. He was in his 20’s at the time what if he had been a fan of say Herman’s Hermits? One thing for sure my dad put me on the road to liking great music.
