    I'm looking for some amazing music this New Year's weekend. Any recommendations?

    As a background, I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan and classic rock know it all with a love of blues (howlin wolf) and soul (Wilson Pickett). I also enjoy older country (Willie, Waylon & $) but my favorite albums of the year have been Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isbell.

    I'd love to hear your ideas.

    Why not just stream a playlist from one of the many New Year's Eve lists on Pandora, Spotify, etc.

    No I have all those and I use them frequently, but I'm old-fashioned and still like to own music.

    Also, doesn't need to be New Year's centric, just something to brighten the weekend.

    I recently picked up a copy of My Gospel by Paul Cauthen. I recommend it if you like country, of the outlaw type.

    If you don't have any Jeffrey Foucault, you might check him out.

    Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats.. first album is the pic though newest one ain't bad either.. he describes his music as The Band meets Sam and Dave.

    And if you haven't heard St Paul and the Broken Bones yet, give Half the City a spin.. soul soul soul...

    Some obscure old harmonica player named Mick something-or-other just released an album of blues covers. He also sings pretty good.

    The rest of the players are sort of over the hill but in a quaint English sort of way.

    Oh yeah, the work is titled ''Blue and Lonesome''...

    I have most of the Nathaniel Rateliff's including the night sweats. Oddly it is my nearly 2-year-olds favorite album. Kids got good taste.

    I will check out St. Paul and the broken bones next.

    Check Wilco's latests, "Schmilco".

    Also, for great Tele tones, check out Julian Lage's latest, "Arclight".

    I saw St Paul and the Broken Bones earlier this year at Glastonbury, I'd like to reiterate their suggestion - "Call Me" is a great track. Alter Bridge's new album "The Last Hero" and Volbeat's "Seal the Deal and Let's Boogie" are also great, but maybe a touch heavy for your classic rock leanings.

    I just bought Half the City by St. Paul and the broken bones, amazed. Thank you. Keep the recommendations coming. I might spend too much money this New Year's :)

    Isbell fans, I presume, are already all over his previous band's latest, but if not, I can't say enough good about Drive-By Truckers' American Band.

    For fans of Nathan Rateliff, I recommend Anderson East. Of course, if you want to go back to the source, William Bell's This Is Where I Live was probably my favorite album of the year.

    Both of JD McPherson's albums are vintage guitar-based rock n roll and blues. Vintage Trouble's 1 Hopeful Road adds some raucous, sweaty soul to that mix, and Dwight Yoakam's Second Hand Heart is a real return to form.

    And for all around bluesy weirdness, check out C.W. Stoneking.
