My favorite non-GL albums

Vince Guaraldi at Grace Cathedral (VG is magical on the piano)
Punch the Big Guy John Stewart
Poems,Prayers and Promises John Denver
Canons in the Rain John Stewart
A Charlie Brown Christmas Vince Guaraldi

The two John Stewart CD's are a world in themselves. I particularly like his song "Botswanna" and how hard it is for him to get the sad pictures of the children of Botswanna out of his mind. Beautiful

From 1977:

Pete Townshend & Ronnie Lane - Rough Mix

Personnel includes: Pete Townshend, Ronnie Lane (acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, bass, banjo, ukelele); Eric Clapton (acoustic & electric guitars, dobro); Graham Lyle (12-string acoustic guitar); Charlie Hart (violin); Peter Hope Evans (harmonica); Benny Gallagher (accordion); Mel Collins (saxophone); John Entwistle (brass, background vocals); Ian Stewart (piano); Rabbit (piano, Fender Rhodes electric piano, organ); Boz Burrell (bass); David Marquee (double bass); Charlie Watts, Henry Spinetti (drums); Julian Diggle (percussion); Billy Nicholls (background vocals). Recorded at Olympic Studios in London, England between 1976 and 1977. ROUGH MIX is one of the most relaxed albums of Pete Townshend's solo career. With this release, the Who leader leaves the thundering avalanche of his band to create a rustic pub band atmosphere. It's a damn notable pub band to be sure (with guest performances from Charlie Watts, Eric Clapton, and Ian Stewart, to name a few) and one can only surmise how much the late (and former Small Faces member) Ronnie Lane is responsible for the offhand charm. On ROUGH MIX, ukelele, dobro, and accordion outweigh the Les Pauls and Marshall stacks that usually attend Townshend's music. The album's best tunes (some of which were written and are sung by Lane himself) rely on warm homespun invitations rather than riffs played at eardrum-shattering volume. With tunes are by turn bucolically wistful ("Annie"), sweeping and majestic ("Street in the City"), and playfully grandiose ("Misunderstood"), ROUGH MIX is delightfully out of place in Townshend's catalogue

If it ain't GL, then it's ...

Blood on the Tracks - BD

If an LP stands up after 30 years it gets my vote.

Home Movies (best of) - EBTG

Far and away the best of the "best of"

Harvest - NY

Nothing he recorded prior to this release (or beyond) will beat this.

Union - Toni Childs

Unique ....

Toad the Wet sprocket - "PS" (Best of)

Paul Carrack - 21 good reasons

Mike

"Song of the Candle" is simply a masterpiece of songwriting, about songwriting. And "Bluenose" - a
stirring ode to the famous Canadian schooner.

Also: John Stewart's "Phoenix Concerts"
Mickey Newbury's "Heaven Help the Child"
Eric Andersen's "Blue River"
I just love Stan's music. He's right up there in my top five favorite performers.

Good topic! I would recommend a CD of Elvis' '69 Memphis sessions, a Del Shannon "Best of", The Beach Boys "Pet Sounds", Dylan's "Blood On The Tracks", Dennis Wilson's "Pacific Ocean Blue" and anything by the Kinks!!

Gotta disagree on Harvest being NY's best. Right up there if not better in my opinion are:

Everybody Knows this is Nowhere
Zuma
Ragged Glory
After the Gold Rush

and the latest NY offering, Prairie Wind is pretty damn good too

From a more religious perspective: John Michael Talbot is a fantastic guitarist and an excellent voice. He draws his lyric primarily from sacred scripture, especially the Psalms. He's has lots of works and I would recommend "For the Bride".
