    There's tons of good stuff, but my introduction to DBII and some of my favorite playing by the guy was actually on Roger Waters' In the Flesh DVD/live show. Pretty incredible stuff there; Doyle does most of the Gilmour guitar work.

    "Welcome" is good. His work with Charlie Sexton in Arc Angels was good, too.

    I would recommend "Welcome" , first and then "Jelly Cream".
    The Arc Angels stuff is good too.

    Funny you would ask this. I'm watching the new Arc Angels DVD/CD right now! I'd recommend Welcome or Jellycream for Doyle Bramhall II. Doyle is a really good guitar player, but it's his voice I'm digging tonight.

    One of my favorites. Listening to Welcome now ...

    Interesting feature on DBII in the "Before the Music Dies" documentary as well.

    anything smokestack is badass...the thing that got me hooked was his concert at the great wall of china. Amazing performance. Hooked me for life. Def check out that dvd before his cds....they dont stack up.

    Played on Amos Lee's "Last Days At The Lodge" album. It's a pretty good alternative folk rock type album with some pretty cool lead playing (though it isn't really the focus of the CD).

    NO WAY. That is news to me, thanks for the heads-up. I'll be checking that one out for sure.

    Another vote for Welcome. I don't think there's a bad jumping-on point for Doyle, though.

    If you prefer more traditional blues rock then "Bird's Nest On The Ground" is a good album.

    John Mayer told me a lot of great things about Doyle... after that conversation we jammed this blues to students. He throw Doyle's touch here.

    I like how Doyle really digs in and plays HARD alot of the times, similar to the best Bluesmen like Albert King, Albert Collins, and Muddy Waters...
