    I bet some people have already made a few of these recommendations:
    Tom Waits: Nighthawks at the Diner
    Victoria Vox: Chameleon
    Del Amtiri: Twisted
    Billy Joel's Piano Man... Not a Tele to be heard (it sounds like Les Pauls everywhere), but great stuff. I was listening in headphones the other day. The arrangements are inventive, the playing is great, and the songs are good to great.
    Jean-Jacques Goldman: Chansons pour les Pieds. Yes, it's in French. But just listen to everything else. You don't need to understand the lyrics to enjoy it. Brilliant stuff.

    Almost forgot Green On Red's _The Killer Inside Me_. Sort of a "Winterreise" for the 20th Century.

    I am a late-comer to early Fleetwood Mac (but have really caught up in the last 4-5 years) and Bare Trees is so creative and fantastic.

    You really hear a continuation of the under-appreciated genius of Danny Kirwan ( my new 'guitar hero' now) with his guitar tones/playing/layering and songwriting. Plus Christine McVie ( always uncredited earlier, till Kiln House) is coming out with a beautiful voice and keys, and Bob Welch too, " Ghost Town!"

    * this CD also, lives in my car!

    Any of the Alligator Records "Genuine Houserockin' Music" compilations are pretty good listens.

    Emmylou Harris' "Wrecking Ball." It's my favorite album of all time. "Car wheels on a Gravel Road" by Lucinda Williams. "Interstate City" by Dave Alvin and the Guilty Men (This is a live album, which some people don't like. But if you do like it live, I would also recommend "Live Shots" by Joe Ely.)

    :D:D:D...so true. Al Kooper's retrospective collection Rare & Well Done:The Greatest and Most Obscure Recordings 1964-2001 is also a nice collection that I enjoy listening to, start to finish, every few months.

    Many recommendations for Lucinda Williams Car Wheels. I actually prefer an earlier album, so you might check that one out too.

    Thanks. I wanted to post something that was at least somewhat contemporary, in the literal sense, not an album that's 40 years old. And, while there are a few who know who JJ Grey is, most people have never heard of him.

    There's nothing flashy about it. It's not over produced, slick, or polished. The guitar playing is unassuming. JJs vocals soulful and tasteful. He's a great story teller. You can especially hear that on songs like Tragic and On Palestine.

    Not sure your taste, but Purple Rain by Prince is probably one of my all-time favorite albums to listen to the whole way through.

    Never heard this before. First song was very soothing music on an otherwise hectic Friday. Thanks.
