Eva Cassidy-Wonderful World and Live at Blues Alley
Jack Johnson- On and On
Seal- disc 2 of his new greatest hits is all acoustic and pretty amazing, worth a listen. I didn't own any Seal music before now and the acoustic versions of some of his songs are really really good.
Willie Nelson-Stardust SACD
James Taylor-October Road- I second this disc, excellent recording
Happy Holidays to all!
Misfits "20 Hits" (yellow skull album) - hey, Mikey F. likes 'em...
I'd forgotten how real this band was for about 18 years until this year -- last memory I had of it was listening to it on headphones in a Ramada Inn somewhere while along for the ride at my older brother's hockey tournament, keeping busy by going to the gym and playing with the stair machine and other exercise equipment, listening to classics like "London Dungeon" and "Where Eagles Dare"... I find myself 18 years later appreciating this album for so much more, and find it hard to put away. Danzig is another story, but there's something real about the old Misfits stuff. "Here's hoping you're swell!"

Rodney Crowell-Fates Right Hand
I bought "Houston Kid" because of a review in Stereophile, and it never quite took off for me. But I thought enough of Rodney Crowell to buy "Fate's Right Hand", and I love it. What a fantastic album. Stereophile should follow up and listen to it. I've seen it very cheap in Tower Records.
The 1975 Phil Spector and Dion collaboration "Born To Be With You" and Dion's 1976 "Streetheart". Both these albums are available on one UK import CD. Also, Dion's 1993 "Rock n' Roll Christmas" CD has been getting heavy rotation this week.

Someone recommended this one (Dandylion Records?) as a reference CD. Every time I listen to this pressing, I cannot believe the fidelity, production, and lyrics of this CD. I have a British pressed remaster (1997) catalog # BGOCD351. The master tape was from 1971, and obviously, someone knew what they were doing back then, because I've NEVER heard a remastered CD from this era sound so intoxicating!
The first place on repeatability belongs to
"Remain in Light" by Talking Heads. For this album I have several vinyls in case if one of them goes bad the other one will and will and will continue on spinning and I shoud add I play it very very loud!
Trailing behind is "Fish for Fish" self-titled electronic album.
Louis Armstrong & Duke Ellington-The Great Summit
Jennifer Warnes - The Well
Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music - My own compilation CD
David Byrne and The Talking Heads - My own compilation CD
Toots and The Maytals - Greatest Hits
Bob Marley - Legend
Sir Neville Mariner and the Academy of St. Martin In The Fields-The Mozart Experience (5 CDs) (Philips Label)
"Le Pas du Chat Noir", Anouar Brahem / Soothing, melodic,
hypnotic...very beautiful music.
"El Cant De La Sibil-La", Montserrat Figueras & Jordi Savall in
La Capella Reial De Catlunya / An astounding recording on the Alia Vox
label - Figueras has a remarkable voice that will test the range of any
system...a remarkable sense of atmosphere recorded in a stone
church....GORGEOUS music! The category it is usually found in is
"Swordfishtrombone", Tom Waits / Love'em or hate'em...I
think the man's a genius myself. This is one I never tire of, though there
are many more. Tori Amos also has many I don't seem to tire of.
Alvin is also a very talented piccolo player. Not many people know this.
His rendition of Vivaldi's concerto for piccolo in C Major under
Christopher Hogwood's baton is indeed a stellar recording.
