    Wes Montgomery in a quartet setting.... just before he left the Riverside label..... no cheesy string sections.... no over production.... 4 jazz musicians doing what they do best.... with Wes leading the way, of course.... To me, his best work....Boss Guitar...

    From one of the new guys...

    I love lists like this, but they're often so subjective, and I find it difficult to come up with a response, sometimes. However, that won't stop me. :)

    1. The db's - Repercussions
    Perfect jangle pop with brains. Actually, any record with Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple is worth what you pay for it.

    2. Jack Bruce - Things We Like
    I bought this as a kid because I was a huge Bruce and Cream fan. I returned it because I didn't get it. I was a kid, what did I know about jazz. Biggest LP mistake I ever made, it was unavailable for years. John McLaughlin plays on this, just after leaving Miles. Incredible session.

    3. Richard and Linda Thompson - Shoot Out The Lights
    Oh, heck, anything Thompson plays on is great. This album is great because you can hear their marriage falling apart. It made the music that much more powerful.

    4. The Who - Sell Out
    Someone else mentioned this earlier. This is one of those great albums I keep coming back to over and over. "Mary Ann With The Shaky Hands" is one of this band's best songs ever.

    5. The Divinyls - Desperate
    Best thing they ever did. Just recently re-released on CD. Every song kicks a$$. Christine Amphlett's singing can be better then Viagra.

    I could think of about 50 more, but I'll stop now.

    Oh yeah! How bad-ass is 'Trick Bag'?
    Nice latin version of 'Canadian Sunset', too.

    I forget which song it is, but one of the guitar solos on that record was just Tchad Blake recording Cesar while he was checking his amp - he did not realise the tape was rolling.
    The 'always have the tape rolling' mandate can work out pretty good sometimes.

    A reponse from across the pond

    Hello Strangers.
    Been looking at your five neglected albums choices. Here come mine;

    'If I Could Do it All Over Again, I'd Do it All Over You' by Caravan.
    'La Dolce Henke' by Mel Henke
    'What We Did on Our Holidays' by Fairport Convention
    'The Last Will & Testament of Jake Thackray' by Jake Thackray
    'The Wildest Show at Tahoe' by Louis Prima, Keely Smith & Sam Butera

    An oddball selection which will probably change in 24 hours time. But every home should have them!

    Hello ealing rounder and welcome to the forum.:)

    This is a 2 year old thread however (zombie thread), and the webmaster prefers that you start a new thread instead of resurrecting an old one.:oops:
