Mine is The Byrds Sweetheart of the Rodeo

Second place is Waylong Jennings Honkey Tonk Heros

How about yours?

Sorry for the mistake. "Wanlong" was a typo, not an anatomical comentary. (somewhere Freud is laughting)

There are several for me-first off, though, is Danni Leigh's "Shot of Whiskey & A Prayer record-this was her second record, then my friend Katie Cook had a record out with a band called Reno and their self-titled record, which was released on Curb Records in 2001 is awesome! No steel on it, but Katie's voice is awesome! Danni's "Shot of Whiskey & A Prayer" features Steve Hinson on steel, and features a song written by Stacy Dean Campbell called "Honey I Do", which Danni does really well, then there's a song on there written by fiddle player John Hartford called "Back In Your Arms Again", which Danni sounds awesome on and the steel work by Steve Hinson is awesome on the song too. That album also features a producer who also plays bass, Emory Gordy Jr., who is another one of my favorite musicians.

'Sit Down Young Stranger' by Gordon Lightfoot. It's the only album I like to listen to all the way through.

It's impossible to pick just one, but if somebody held a gun to my head and said "one only!" then it has to be "Pet Sounds."

Never heard him being referred to as "Waylong"...hmmm...but "Honky Tonk Heroes" is definitely my favorite country album of all time.

My favorite album with singing on it would have to be The Wilburn Brothers sing Hinson and Gaither. I like too many instrumental albums to name just one

The answer would vary from day to day. Today it's "Moby Grape."

That is pretty funny, Tom. Did you mean to say, Waymore? I guess that could also be considered a Freudian slip in some circles.. Laughing

Oh yeah, Jack - brother i wore that one out. i found it in a goodwill store bin for .50 when i was living in nashville, i still remember picking my jaw up off the floor when the needle hit the grooves.
i was a HUGE Norman Blake fan and bought it just because i saw him on the back cover. i knew then where the New Grass Revival got their sound from.

you can thank David Bromberg for the success of that LP - a few years ago i got the out-takes CD and it was a neat insight into the making of that LP, but was mediocre material at best. that was one jammin band that would be these new jam bands to shame.

Jerome, I wore that record out, too. A couple of them, in fact.

I remember going to a Hartford one-man show in Saint Paul in the late '80s or early '90s. His woman was set up in the lobby after the concert, selling CDs and stuff. I asked her about that Aereo-Plain album, and she reported that Warner Brothers owned it and had no plans to re-release it.

I was ecstatic a few years later, when it was finally issued on CD. I eventually lost, or more likely borrowed out, that CD. By then it was out of print again, so I was happy to recently discover it has been released yet again.

Anyone who thinks you can't play lap-style using a flatpick should listen to Tut Taylor on this record. (Or listen to Doug Beaumier play "Apache" on a lap steel, but that's another story.)

Too many to list, but, one of my favorites was " Kindlin' " by Gene Parsons. Kind of a Blue Grassy, Country Rock album. It still puts a big smile on my face when I listen to it.

The "Hype Album" is also one of my favorites.
Frank if you have the time and money, check out "Moby Grape- Vintage. There's studio discussions included.

Mine also changes form day to day but I'm glad to find I'm not the only one who'd often say "Moby Grape". FWIW, though NRBQ's "At Yankee Stadium" would perhaps never be considered my favorite album, it's always in my top ten at any given time.
