I'm on a big kick to get some fabulous reference material and I thought I'd share some of my recent additions/favorites and hope you'll share some of your finds this year! The ones I've added this year would be: Alison Krauss - Paper Airplanes (is it possible to have a better vocal??!?!?!) (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar in a mix, resonator) Victor Villadangos - Tango Argentino (classical guitar) Mew - & The Glass Handed Kites (electric guitar) Michael Landau - Tales from the Bulge (electric guitar) - I just melt....... Michael Landau - Organic Instrumentals (electric guitar, acoustic guitar in a mix) - it's not better sounding the TFTB but it has some new tones on it Doug Young - Closing Time (acoustic guitar) Michael Hedges - Breakfast in the Field (acoustic guitar) Martin Simpson - Cool and Unusual (acoustic guitar) Tony McManus - The Maker's Mark: the Dream Guitar Sessions (acoustic guitar) I'm trying to find a CD version of Andy Timmon's Ear X-Tacy too! Anyone else gone through a recent quest like this? I have my other faves too (Dark Side of the Moon, Animals, and more) but these are "Things I've Bought this Year".
