1The Velvet Underground
The Quine Tapes

This 3 cd bootleg collection rocks, except for the piss poor sound quality. There are three different versions of sister ray, ranging between 25 and 38 minutes that have to be heard to be believed. The highlight for me is Follow The Leader off the second disc. Is that song available on any other VU album?
2 Thelonious Monk
Monk's Dream

Monk's solo approach to Body and Soul is fantastic.
3 Julian Bream
Popular Classics for Spanish Guitar

This one is also poor sound quality, which is puzzling since it is a professional recording from the early 1960's. The music however is outstanding, your jaw will drop when you hear Bream doing tremolo picking a string with one finger while playing arpeggios at the same time.
4John Coltrane
A Love Supreme

What is there to say that hasn't already been said? If you guys don't have the deluxe edition I recommend it for the live recording of A Love Supreme in France, it's even more adventurous than the original.
5Reverend Gary Davis
Harlem Street Singer

Here we have a blind Harlem street singer, playing gospel, folk and blues... what more could you possibly want? Samson and Delilah is the highlight off this album. If I had my way, I WOULD TEAR this old building down!
6 Wes Montgomery
Smokin' at the Half Note

This is one of Wes's best albums. Everything he plays is just exactly perfect and the rest of the combo is cooking also.
7Oliver Nelson
The Blues and the Abstract Truth

You can't go wrong with a combo like Oliver Nelson, Freddie Hubbard, Eric Dolphy Bill Evans, Paul Chambers and Roy Haynes. Stolen Moments is one of my favorite songs of all time.
8Tom Waits
Foreign Affairs

I've worked far back enough into the Tom Waits discography to make it to some of his albums before he started singing through a bag of gravel. I rather like his show tune style songs, as different as they are from his best work.
9Kenny Burrell
Midnight Blue

Another jazz/blues album. Kenny Burrell is a fantastic guitarist, I'm very jealous of his tone.
B-Sides and Rarities

CAKE's first b-sides release is a winner in my book. A little stacked towards country rock, but there's nothing wrong with that, am I right?
11 The Grateful Dead
Road Trips Vol. 1 No. 2 (October '77)

Been listening to this to tide me over until my pre-ordered complete winterland '73 10 cd set ships. The Sugaree and Let It Grow are top knotch
Hail to the Thief

Maybe a little too long for what it is, but still a superb album. I don't know how they do it album after album.
13George Benson
White Rabbit

This album rocks! It's before George Benson completely switched over to R&B/easy listening, so you get some very tasty spanish flavored jazz out of this record. I've got to pick up beyond the blue horizon next.
14The Beatles
Anthology 2

I picked this up for two bucks at a used book store. It was so cheap because the second disc had a good sized crack in it, but the cd still ripped perfectly with only one song being slightly corrupted.
15Miles Davis
Bitches Brew

If you don't have this album already BUY IT RIGHT NOW!
Ultramega OK

Circle of Power cracks me up so much, it may be the single greatest song of all time. I've also been listening to screaming life/fopp a lot lately.
17 Art Blakey
Like Someone in Love

The title track is the highlight of the album, the rest of it is above average.
18Bob Dylan
Blonde on Blonde

I hadn't pulled this album out for probably a good two years. I'd forgotten how good it is, still sounds fresh even after all these years.
19John Coltrane
My Favorite Things

I can't get enough of this album! It's unbelievable how many great albums JC put out in his 10 years of recording.
20The Velvet Underground
White Light/White Heat

The first time I listened to this album maybe three years ago I wasn't ready for it. Now I am and I can't get enough of it. Lady Godiva, The Gift and Sister Ray are all masterpieces.
