there has to be one that is out there that changed things for you and really moved you.
Luminaria by Ian Moore probably moved me more than any other record ive ever heard. it was so different than anything id ever heard.  alt.county meets jazz meets roots meets folk meets who knows what.
I'll have to check out This Luminaria album. That sounds great and also addresses what would be my reply. Too many albums to pick out 1.
I guess I'd have to pick a few that stand the test of time and never stopped moving me after years and years of listening.

Charlie Christian live stuff both with BG and the jams at Mintons. (the horns/clarinet do it for me as well)
Clarence White (and Roland and Scotty Stoneman) On any of the live KY Colonels stuff.
Gatemouth Brown especially with horns.
 I'll stop there for the very top but there are some many others. I really am going to check out Ian Moore, I love it when someone can mix up roots with other styles and do it well.

There are lots of albums that are far better than the first album that helped shape my taste in music.  There are many that actually move me more, but this one is the first.  At the age of 7, the one that moved me was my big brother's old J. Geils album, Full House.  It was my stepping-stone to the blues.

Alison Krauss and Union Station Live!

I'm a big Beatles, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, etc fan, but this "album" is amazing from start to finish. The DVD of the concert is cool too.

Here's probably one that is out in left field for most readers here:

Brian Eno, Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois:  Apollo Atmospheres and Soundtracks
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo:_Atmospheres_and_Soundtracks

It got me into experimenting with recording and so forth.  When I do an ambient guitar song; it's the vibe from this record that I'm shooting for.

Sometimes I get close:
Scott Lake - Frozen

or

Scott Lake and James Daniello - Ether

Good call, Scot. Anything by these guys is a joy to listen to. Lanois has the ability to capture the space and time of the moment and use it in a very musical way in his recordings. Not an easy thing to do.

Willie Nelson's "Teatro" is a wonderful example of how DL adds his easily recognizable style to a skilled performance.

Leo Kottke's "My Feet Are Smiling"

Roy Buchanan "First Album"

Showed me what could be done with an acoustic and electric guitar, respectively.

Thanks for the tip, I'll check this out. I love the apollo album also, but my fave album remains John Cale's "Paris 1919" ( another good buddy of Brian Eno).

I have to second the Dead's "American Beauty."  "Pet Sounds" by The Beach Boys runs a close second.

Got to be 'The Yes Album'.

Was probably the first time I really noticed acoustic guitar in rock - courtesy of Steve Howe.

lately, I've realized two albums that have stayed with me as long as I've been playing guitar: Electric Ladyland and Rubber Soul.

but, the album that has move me more than any other? still think it's a 3-way tie for the first 3 Santana albums.

Different albums from different times:


Shadows and Light - Joni Mitchell (live - with an incredible band)
Cocteau Twins - Heaven and Las Vegas
Michael Hedges Aerial Boundaries (still a favourite)
Jeff Buckley - Grace (could not stop playing this for months)
Andy McKee - (various) what a talent, brilliant technique with emotional depth

Tons more, just the 1st ones that came to mind.

Cheers,
Greg

Old folky and Denis, count me in with Stan.  Love both live albums, but have to go to a studio album for the Jeannie C.

But the one album that has moved me more than any other was way back in 1975:
"Hank Williams, Jr. And Friends"

Hank was turning a corner with that one; the "friends" were Charlie Daniels, Toy Caldwell of the Marshall Tucker Band,
Chuck Leavell of the Allman Brothers, and a super picker by the name of Pete Carr.

Second place:
Temporary Road, John Gorka




I agree...."The Living Proof" just blew me away.

If I replied which album caused me to play guitar (which many people on the thread seem to have done) then for me it was U2's "Boy", particularly the opening 2 note chords on 'I Will Follow'.

I remember thinking - There's something that I could play!

And I did.

And still do, over 20 years later.

Just recently got it on CD - only had it on vinyl and cassette for years.
