    I know i know you'll be probably sick of me mentioning Jason Isbell very much.

    but i'm completely hooked on " the nashville sound " what and album !

    i discovered it "late" .. and i didn't listen deeply to it up a couple of weeks ago ..

    now i have the opposite problem, it's really hard to get it off my playlist :)

    have you experienced something similar ? and with which album ?

    The War On Drugs' A Deeper Understanding, probably.

    I too got into JI&400U's Nashville Sound.

    Getting into something like an album takes time, not always readily accessible for the youtube generation.

    1. Pink Floyd, "Obscured By Clouds". I became fascinated with "Childhood's End" on this album. It's very solid early Floyd.

    2. The Cult, "Pure Cult". This is the band I should have been listening to back in the late '80s, but always thought they were for the dressed in black crowd.

    Here and there
    1. The Magpie Salute Live
    2. Deer Tick Vol. 1

    While I love all of Isbell's work, Sirens of the Ditch remains my favorite post-DBT album.

    Some of AC/DC’s deeper albums. I focused so heavily on the heavy hitters that, other than a song or two, didn’t listen to much of the obscure albums.
    ‘74 Jailbreak
    Let There Be Rock

    All of these are just incredible. I listen to them repeatedly

    James Taylor’s October Road.
    Before that, kd lang’s Ingenue.
    Before that, James Taylor’s Never Die Young.
    Yup, I don’t listen to much fresh stuff.
    That’s truly a major failing on my part.

    I've had 'Powerage' and 'High Voltage' on in the car a lot recently.

    Great stuff - and great tone!

    ya, that Ingenue album turned my ears too

    Ben Mink, was that the producer's name? I was impressed with the production on that one

    bill, if you like James Taylor, there's a real pretty song on Sam Outlaw's record Tenderheart called "Bougainvillea, I Think"

    it's a miniature of sorts, about an old woman he was friends with, but whom he only remembers by the flower she wore in her hair

    the fingerpicking is precise, as are the lyrics, reminds me of Taylor

    I got really hooked on Dylan’s Nashville Skyline/Self Portrait stuff when I had my second child.

    I’d had them and listened to them before this but I never understood them until then. He wasn’t trying to change the world like in the 60’s and wasn’t angry like in the 70’s. He was just doing what he wanted to with no agenda and seemed like a boring family man like I felt I’d become. His voice is spot on on Belle Isle and he sounds funny harmonising with himself on The Boxer lol.

    And You are Me by Uncle Lucious, but that was a couple years back, more recently the new Ray Wylie Hubbard album and Altered Five Blues Band.

    I can’t remember. I haven’t listened to an entire album, new or old, in years. Couldn’t tell you anything about music created in the new millennium.

    Recently read that Bob Dylan was a huge fan of Gordon Lightfoot so I downloaded all of his albums and hit all the deep tracks. A ton of great music in his catalog, somewhat out of my wheelhouse but thoroughly enjoyable

    It was a long time ago, but the one that really sticks in my mind as opening me up completely to a new (to me) artist was Jude Cole's Start The Car. A buddy/songwriting collaborator turned me on to him in the very early nineties, and his music (and that album) are still on my regular playlist.

    Pink - Funhouse... Listening to it right now...

    Read or heard a story about the album being about her breakup with her husband Carey Hart (who I knew from my motocross obsession). Turns out they got back together, but the words of the songs on that album take on new meaning and it's easy to see how Pink literally put her heart and soul into the songs.

    I was just listening to this again today. It is such a gem. Not all winners but so many great songs. Today, it was Desecration Smile that hooked me. There’s even a Neil Young feel to that one.
