Pick and post 1 record you never tire of and play over and over...

We all have our "desert island" lists. When listening critically, wanting to have the artists "right there", as if playing live in the room, which record/CD do you play often? For me that’s the ultimate goal, recreating the artists right in the room.

I rediscovered "Nickel Creek", the eponymous record by Nickel Creek, a few years ago. It’s produced by the superb Alison Krauss (in 2000), a longtime favorite. On many levels, it’s sublime (unless you hate the genre). Exquisite playing/picking of mandolin, guitar, bouzouki, violin, and wonderful vocals and harmonies. I close my eyes and they are *right there* in the room, standing at full height, good soundstage, 3-D, almost alive. Just wonderfully recorded. Track 5 is a good sampler: https://youtu.be/2lyZQB1H_Zw

Other shortlisted records:
• A Meeting by the River by Ry Cooder and VM Bhatt (Water Lily)
• Appalachia Waltz by Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Mark O’Connor
• Alison Krauss & Union Station: New Favorite
• Lyle Lovett- Joshua Judges Ruth
• Muddy Waters - Folk Singer

• Many more, of varied genres. Too many to list!

Here's two by Procul Harum that are tough to choose between: Shine On Brightly and A Salty Dog.
Here's two classical LPs that are tough to choose between: Sainte Saens Symphony 3 - Munch/BSO/RCA and Barenboim/CSO/DG. Careful with the volume control when listening to the last movement!
Two by Frank Zappa/Mothers of Invention: Burnt Weenie Sandwich and Uncle Meat. Avante garde rock at its best!
The Velvet Underground: The Velvet Underground And Nico and Loaded. NYC pre-punk rockers that started a thousand bands!
Two German avante garde rockers: Can - Soon Over Baba Luna, Amon Duul II - Dance Of The Lemmings. Mind-expanding stuff!
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme and Ballads. The master of the tenor sax at his best!
