LJC Reader Polls

UPDATE May 2023: Free Polls no longer supported  on WordPress,  transferred to Survey Monkey, a monetised add-on. Wrong business model for a “free” music blog, so discontinued. Shame, but comments remain open, as always.


UPDATE: February 2017 – Polldady introduced new rules to the effect that polls may last no longer than one week, so the purpose of this page is defunct as will not be maintained, other that as of historical interest.

Here on LJC, visitors are encouraged to throw in their opinions – not just read mine – and judging from the readership stats, you want your say, so you get it.

Polls have been another fun thing, so put together here, on a permanent page, are all the polls on LJC since I started experimenting with them in April 2013. If you are new to the site, or missed voting, unfortunately Polldaddy has started restricting voting time to just one week .

If you want to catch up on the final score for any Poll topic, at the foot of each poll is a “View Results” function, clicking  will take you to the latest voting results. If you have already voted but are desperate to see your choices higher rank, you could persuade a friend to vote. If you don’t have any friends…

  1. Regarding the comparison of different releases of Kenny Dorham’s Philly Twist, there is no doubt in my opinion that the French release is more like an original Blue Note sound although I’ve never heard any of this LP before. Actually, I think it’s superb and must try to get a version as good.
