What are people's favorite new albums of the past year ('06 included)? My vote goes for David Gilmour's beautiful masterpiece 'On An Island' What do you think?

I'll start with the 60s. This is stuff I still play. Hot Rats by Frank Zappa. Truth by Jeff Beck. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and East/West by the same. Anything by Cream. Are You Experienced and Band of Gypsies by Jimi. John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers (EC, Green and Taylor).

I'll stop now.

re: On an Island

Haven't listened to that one yet. If it's that good I may have to pick it up.

Good stuff. I still hear something new on Zappa's - Shut up and play
your guitar. And anything by Jimi - Rainbow bridge, War heroes,
cry of love........
My buddy recently left his GF and asked me to store his 8+ crates of
vinyl. Got alot of goodies in there.

Frank talk.....I love it....
F.Z. lives on

If the question reads
"What are people's favorite new albums of the past year ('06 included)? "
then I will say my favorite newer album/dvd is Neil Young's heart of gold Dvd...
very nicely done and touching....

The only 06/07 cd I've listened to in full is Songlines by Derek Trucks.

I just picked up a CD that I've been looking for for a long time.

The album is Deep Purple's "Burn". The title track is great and that's what most people have heard (it's on their greates hits) but there are some really excellent tunes on the album that are largely overlooked.

It was David Coverdales big break and also featured Glen Hughs on bass and vocals.

I'm a big DP fan and do love the Ian Gillan stuff, but this is hands down my favourite Deep Purple album.

John Prine and Mac Wiseman... "Standard Songs For Average People"... But that one really only leaps to mind, cause I just got it... and it's great!

LOL I was about to post my fav albums of ALL time, good thing I did a bit of reading.

Going back on topic, I just realized I can't even remember listening to any CD that was released the last 2 years except for Morph the Cat by Donald Fagen.

For 06/07? I'd have to go with Snakes and Arrows or maybe Neil's Massey Hall, Frank hasn't put anything out lately but if you get a chance, check out 'Real Live' recorded at Club Soda in Montreal in 2001. Frank totally amazes me.
