The Harbor Lights Concert
John Denver (Released 2002)
Possessing an unbounded generosity and a
prodigious talent as a singer, songwriter, and environmental activist, John
Denver was always one of my favorite artists. No, he wasn't flashy, but I
respected him more than any singer and I was greatly saddened by his
sudden death in 1997. This is John Denver at his best.
Will The Circle Be Unbroken, Vol. II
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (1989)
The most inspirational
collection of bluegrass and country music ever produced. This is a
compilation of over a dozen phenomenal artists, each singing music in their own
Life's Railway to Heaven
(by Johnny Cash)
The Beatles (1969)
Many think Abbey Road was one of the finest
albums ever recorded, and I agree. This is the Beatles at their best.
Sheryl Crow (1996)
The follow-up to Sheryl's debut (and scattered) "Tuesday Night
Music Club" album, this is Sheryl's strongest and most consistent CD.
It shows off her talents as a singer and songwriter.
Last of The True Believers
Nanci Griffith (1986)
Grammy-winning Austin native Nanci Griffith
carried the banner for folk music throughout the 1980s and '90's. This is
one of her earlier CDs.
Love At The Five And Dime
The Billy May Sessions Nat King Cole (1951)
Nat's smoky smooth vocals are Unforgettable. I could've put any of his albums on my
Top 10 list.
Walking My Baby Back Home
Karla Bonoff (1995)
Known more as a songwriter than a
singer, Karla comes from
the Southern California pop-country-rock scene, writing hits for
Linda Ronstadt, Wynonna Judd and others. This album is more
mature than her earlier efforts and really shows her stuff.
Goodbye My Friend
Listen Without Prejudice
George Michael (1990)
Despite his recent legal and personal problems, I still
respect George Michael as an artist and this album was his strongest effort.
It was a great
follow-up to "Faith" and every song is a winner.
Eva Cassidy (1998)
Eva is the best singer you've never
heard of. An amazing jazz-blues-folk singer, Eva refused to be pigeon-holed
by recording companies. That, along with her shyness, hindered her career
-- but not that she cared, she just wanted to sing. Sadly, Eva died in 1998 from cancer.
