Whats in your CD player?

Recommended Posts

Kirk's CD has been in there a lot since I got it.

And a new fellow I discovered on another forum- GregV

He recommended I check out the most recent Jackson Brown CD (The Naked Ride Home)

for the guitar work of Mark Goldenberg

Then this eclectic group:

Soundtrack from Hatari- Henry Mancini

Paul Gilbert & Jimi Kidd

Little Feat- Waiting For Columbus

The Campbell Bros. Sacred Steel on Tour

Greg Koch (rhymes with chalk) Radio Free Gristle

Subdudes- Primitive Streak

Paul Butterfield Blues Band- Anthology- the Elektra Years

Buzzy Linhart- Classic Recordings

Van Wilks

Latlely I've been listening to Tampa Red, Blind Boy Fuller, and some old John Lee Hooker, the stuff he played solo on acoustic guitar.

I've also been listening to old Muddy Waters recordings, like Rollin and Tumblin, Cant be satisfied, etc.

I also like to listen to some Sonny Landreth, I love his playing, but some of his songs are a little overproduced for my liking.

That young kid Derek Trucks just floors me. I heard him play with Sonny on a Junior Wells (I think) compilation, and Derek more than held his own. Sounds like he has been playing for 30 years.

I must say, that my all time favourite CD is "No Apostrophe".

I sincerly mean it, (I'm not hoovering).

I loaned my copy to a friend and never seen it again.

Did some one mentioned Roy Rogers and Norten Buffalo here?

Thats what really makes me smile, good harp and slide together.

in my cd player at the mo there is dr john, snooks eaglin, son house, some kokomo arnold, tampa red and captain beefheart. tampa red is quite new to me but i'm impressed. "cant get that stuff no more" is the song i've had on most today. i might take beefheart out for a bit cuz its hurting my head, i think you have to be in the right mood for it.

Well I have been 'ripping' all of my CDs into MP3s and loading them onto my monster harddrive. I have wired my home so the stereo has speakers in a couple of rooms. I also have a Roku SoundBridge which lets me 'broadcast' MP3 files to the stereo. It is awesome to listen to my music with real speakers as opposed to PC speakers or headphones. :wink:
