I think this is fun to do occasionally,  here's the five CDs currently stacked next to my computer:

1) Blues Masters Vol.8: Mississippi Delta Blues
2) Norman Blake: Whiskey Before Breakfast
3) Nick Drake: Five Leaves Left
4) Black Crowes: Greatest Hits
5) Merle Haggard: The Bluegrass Sessions

Next to play is either FUGAZI or Pearl Jam, I need some energy here late at work...

How 'bout you?

Sorry you modern iPod/iTune "mix my favorite songs" types...only full-length releases listened in their entirety count.

Indeed. They don't get any better than MJH. I've been working on my John Hurt repertoire a lot lately. Must have the blues. Ain't nobodies business but my own. Maybe if winter would go away.

I've been playing a fingerstyle versionof that for a few years now.  It was in the now defunct Guitar World Acoustic magazine a couple of years ago.

Indeed, Blue! This makes the 4th time seeing him. One of the best live shows out there in acoustic music [IMHO].
