House of the Rising Sun - Bob Dylan | Songs, Reviews ...
Graham Kearns. Bob Dylan. The House of the Rising Sun
Bob Dylan included this on his first album in 1962, using a folk arrangement he picked up from hearing Dave Van Ronk perform it and singing it as "it's been the ruin of many a poor girl." When The Animals recorded it two years later, it was transformative listening for Dylan, who learned he could put apply a rock rhythm to a folk song. He bought an electric guitar and started to use it, famously at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival where he did an electric set for the first time. 
The Best Of The Decca Years by The Weavers
Peter Woodcock.   A-round the Corner - The Weavers - late 1940s. As a kid, this song really took my fancy and led me into the world of Folk Music in which I had many years of involvement. Coincided with getting my first (plastic) ukulele.

Blowing in the Wind - Bob Dylan but Peter Paul and Mary's version mid 60's A folk-singing group I was in (West Side Four) sang this song in the finals of 'Have a Shot' at the Auckland Town Hall - and won!! Big time win which led to a couple of years doing gigs around Auckland and even Brooklyn Bowl in New Plymouth. Good times.

Pride and Prejudice (1940 film) - Wikipedia
Jeanette Roberts. Best book and movie. “Pride and Prejudice”  Jane Austin. Published in 1815.  
The film version I like best is the 1940 MGM version, starring Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson, but the 1980 BBC TV Presentation starring Elizabeth Garvie and David Rintoul was very good and to my mind better acting and more honest than the later versions - 1995 with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle and the 2005 one with Matthew Macfadyen and Keira Knightley.  I have the 1940, 1990 and 1995 ones on video.

Nick Loseby.  Film. The Italian Job. Best of British actors along with beautiful British and Italian cars, humour and of course the unforgettable line “You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off” This is one film where you wanted the “baddies” to get away with it.
