    “The Secret Life of Plants” by Stevie Wonder. Live Stevie but don’t buy that album. In all honesty I cannot claim anybody claimed it was good before I bought it.

    The most memorable was long ago. I was a big Hendrix, Cream etc fan, loved guitar driven rock. A musician friend saw a band that he just raved about and insisted I’d love ‘em so I dutifully trotted out and bought the album. “Three Dog Night” was the single biggest disappointment of my listening life. Jeremiah was a bullfrog? Oh, man...

    My brother had a live 8 track of theirs that I thought was pretty good, even though I was not a fan.

    I LOVE this album,
    I play " You're No Good" and " Baby, Let Me Follow You Down" on acoustic at home just about every day for kicks.

    ( note: in the early 2000's I kind of played catch-up getting really familiar with all the songs on Dylan's early albums.
    And I really took to a lot of his solo guitar playing, and taught myself a bunch of songs, just for kicks, good hands and brain-work practice. He was pretty solid )

    I bought it because it was a "classic". I like exactly two songs on it. The rest, especially the last two, are filler.

    Do you listen to any solo acoustic guitarists? If so, which ones do you like?

    I don't enjoy Tommy Emmanuel's music either, so maybe it's a genre thing for me.
    Acoustic solo pieces that come to mind that I've liked are by Julian Lage and Pat Metheny.
