    And you expect good music.

    I'm enjoying this.....

    Badfinger was on the same label as the Beatles and the recordings are very good and the lyrics are a bit more mature. It's good guitar pop/rock with good vocals and keyboards.

    No Matter What You Are, Baby Blue, Without You......good driving music.

    If you don't want a greatest hits thing you could buy Straight Up. Good album.

    My vote - Badfinger.

    I bought the Badfinger hits CD and an Iggy Pop hits CD on iTunes last week. I'm having lots of fun driving with it.

    1972 - Jangle Pop. This will take you back.......

    Badfinger is great. Not unknown to an old fellow like me though.

    Ok. Listen to some singles off this album. The sticker on the album cover is accurate but misleading. It's pop with a good earthy groove but it's rock; not folksy.

    It's one of my favorites....all the way through. Great honest music.

    The next thing I'm buying is Arctic Monkeys album AM.

    I listened to the whole thing last night on the youtubes, and was really impressed.

    Yup. Features a 5 min drum solo. Eric's guitar is on fire, he's so great to listen to when he's good. He handles all the guitar work on the record.

    St Vincent - Marry Me

    Easily one of the best albums of the 00's, if you ask me.

    Lake Street Drive is quite good. Also, the new Ray LaMontagne is quite surprising. It doesn't sound at all like his last one- hard to describe, but he's singing from a whole other place.

    Oh- also, I offer a Tele user's discount on my new album- recorded atAbbey Road to analog tape, with sexy guest stars (Ken Stringfellow from the Posies and REM, Ed Ball from TV Personalities, drums by Dave Mattacks of Fairport Convention/XTC) and mastered for vinyl by Gavin Lurssen who does all TBone Burnett's projects. Only $10 with postage for you cats.

    Yup - Southeastern

    It's been out for over a year, but Gaslight Anthem's Handwritten is great too.

    A lot of these you can find on Grooveshark also if you want to listen to them all way through before committing.

    Artificial release is also fantastic. This a 2CD release with no filler songs to speak of.
    [​IMG]

    New Age'ish electronica with a catchy flamenco guitarist vibe.
    [​IMG]

    Also check out greatest hits acoustic release on there. Many other great cuts in their catalog, been around almost 30yrs, one of downunders best kept secrets.

    Phil is absolutely in his element in this fusion oriented release.
    [​IMG]

    Absolutely fantastic start to finish modern blues album.
    [​IMG]

    Combination Head. All 3 releases are fantastic start to finish if you like ELP and prog rock with melody, catchy hooks. Last 2 releases have some very catchy vocal tracks as well.
    [​IMG]

    Just one of those albums you just set down with and close your eyes and enjoy in it entirety. Mr. Wakeman and a piano, that's it, true virtuoso playing at its finest.
