Icon47 Best albums you've heard this year?

This needs to include stuff you've heard this year not just new releases. If you are like me then you will be buying back catalog stuff by people you are still discovering.

Here's my 10 favourites i got this year in no particular order:

Glenn - M4TD.
Edwin Dare - My Time to Die.
Shawn Smith - Let it all begin.
Brad - Shame.
Brad - Welcome to Discovery Park
Keith Caputo - Died Laughing
Tommy Bolin - Whips and Roses I
Rainbow - Live Munich 1977
Keane - Under the Iron Sea
JJ Marsh - Music from Planet Marsh

Bonus Boot:

Trapeze - Live at Queens College NY 1971

Plus one other rarity which will be appearing on Mel's myspace site in January
AWESOME

Best music dvds

Rainbow - Live in Munich 1977.
Journey - Live in Houston 1981
Rainbow - Final Cut/Live Between the Eyes.

There is probably a whole load of others i missed out but these are the ones that i played a lot and kept going back to for another listen. Edwin Dare has been playing in my car for the last 3 weeks.

I think Monkey Man is gonna be my favourite from M4TD but its just so damn hard to choose cos You Got Soul, Valiant Denial & Steppin On are all killer tracks.

For us the best albums have been Glenn Hughes albums we had never heard; did not know existed. It's been quite a ride, and is the music we listen to as a family that we all love. Susan and I never argue about what CDs to listen to now! LOL. I have Chip to thank for steering me right, and also Shirl and Grace.
Glenn Hughes is the best and most extraordinary talent that I've ever heard. I can't wait to meet him and tell him so. His music made a very positive change in my life.

For non-GH music, my friend Tomo Fujita's "Live in Japan" and "Put on Your FunK Face" have been eye-opening for me as a guitar player. This guy can flat out play jazz and very incredible blues, as well as is the best funk guitar player I've ever heard. He has sent me lessons and DVDs, and is a very giving and incredibly talented player. He is a teacher at Berkeley, if anyone is interested do a google on him and listen to some of his sound clips it is well worth it. He's awesome.

I have also enjoyed JJ's CD, and appreciated his kindness and accessibility, and tips on Marshalls. What a great guy!! I look forward to seeing what he's cooking up.

And boy, Paul, I appreciate you so much telling Mel the way I felt, and I look forward to hearing his music on the My Space site as soon as we go into the 21st century with high speed this coming year.

Just following up with what Roger said...getting connected with GH music has been awesome for us. I love all the albums, but I am quite addicted to M4TD, Feel and BTM.

For those interested in checking out Tomo, his site is: http://www.tomofujita.com I also am very impressed with his style. Very cool guy, too!

Hands down it's Toto's Falling In Between. That was the best concert of the year as well. I still pull out the album and get blown away by it every time. It's the only album I've ever bought that I had on endless replay without replacing it in the CD player. It's not the greatest album of all time like Toto, but I also enjoy Whitesnake's Restless Heart a lot. I finally just got the Japan version off of EBay, having downloaded the album before. Which, thinking about it, I should have just bought it new , since I'll blow hundreds and thousands on stupid trips so what's 40 bucks for a CD I'm going to play over and over again? The Japan tracks on this are very good and you get three of them so it's worth it. I love putting this CD on the way to gigs as Coverdale's singing in a lower pitch so I can get warmed up before the gig.

Here we go.....

I buy and I listen to so much music that it's almost impossible to mention everything. Also, I still buy a lot of old Vinyl. In total there must have been around 200-300 additions to my collection. And then I listen to and I permanently rediscover groups, albums and songs in my collection, some of which I haven't listened to in years.

I try to put most of the stuff I listen to, old and new, in my signature here on the site which I change regularly, but I really don't have enough time to change it every time I put on another album/song - honestly I even can't remember correctly everything I have listened to today.....

Except for Blues, which I can't remember having listened to this year (will put it on later, that's for sure...) I have listened to every one of Glenn's Solo albums - I can narrow that down to just this one.
From HTP II, I have only listened to "Losing My Head" and I'm not sure whether I have listened to the first HTP album or the Live CD. Probably not.

Anyway, here are (hopefully most of) the New Releases 2006 I have listened to:

Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not
Audioslave – Revelations
The Beatles – Love
The Beautiful South – Superbi
Belle and Sebastian – The Life Pursuit
James Dean Bradfield – The Great Western
Brighteye Brison – Stories
Johnny Cash – American V: A Hundred Highways
Console – Mono
Embrace – This New Day
Flaming Lips – At War With The Mystics
The Flower Kings – Paradox Hotel
Frost – Midtown
Glenn Hughes – Music For The Divine
Billy Idol – Happy Holidays
The Infadels – We Are Not The Infadels
Billy Joel – 12 Gardens Live
Junior Boys – So This Is Goodbye
Keane – Under The Iron Sea
The Lizards – Against All Odds
JJ Marsh – Music From Planet Marsh
Moonstone Project - Time ToTake A Stand
Gary Moore - Old New Ballads Blues
Neal Morse – Cover To Cover
Muse – Black Holes & Revelations
Nouvelle Vague – Bande A Part
Peeping Tom – s/t
Phenomena – Psycho Fantasy
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Stadium Arcadium
Sparks – Hello Young Lovers
Strokes – First Impressions Of Earth
Swedish Family – Vintage Prog
John Wetton / Geoff Downes – Icon II: Rubicon
The Who – Wire & Glass

and only a couple of the 2006 Reissues I have listened to:

Jon Anderson – The Lost Tapes Sampler
Tommy Bolin – Whips and Roses
Keith Emerson – Off The Shelf
Five Day Rain – s/t
Robin George – Crying Diamonds
The Housemartins – Live at the BBC
Reg King – s/t
King Crimson – Live at the Wiltern July 1, 1995
Manic Street Preachers - Everything Must Go 10th Anniv. Ed.
The Maze, Harlem Shuffle EP
Skid Row – Live and on Song
Strawbs – Recollection
Various Artists – Recovered Vol. 3, A Spicy Selection of Soulful Cover Versions
Various Artists – Nothing Is Bizarre
Various Artists – Takin’ A Detour Volume Three
Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band – Bongo Rock (Complete Recordings)

my 5 favourite Music DVDs of the year were...

Bruford – Rock Goes To College
Gary Moore & Friends – One Night In Dublin
Rainbow – Live in Munich 1977
Rush – Replay x3
Yellow Matter Custard - One Night in NYC

... and I am not going to bother with the lists of
Top 5 Concerts 2006, Radio Singles, Moog LPs, Films, Books, etc. etc.

I am sure, as the year finally comes to an end, there will be more threads like this one.....
This is fun...

Cheers,
Christian

P.S. If you read this you've made it through, Congratulations!

Bruford DVD

Hi Tony,

the Bruford DVD is a must-have, Jazz Rock at its very best with stunning virtuosity. It's so great to watch Allan Holdsworth and Jeff Berlin play live, and I have had the rare opportunity to see both players peform live this year, in seperate gigs.

Even Annette Peacock, like her or not, with her free form approach to singing fits perfectly!
The box cover says that the DVD is Region 0 NTSC, so you should be able to watch it worldwide.

Available via the Voiceprint site, where I ordered my copy.

Cheers,
Christian

P.S. Listening to Blues right now - I almost forgot that one of my favourite bass players, Tony Franklin played most of the parts...

Chris,
You have such great taste in music !!! And Bruford was simply one of the most invigorating experiences ever. I have been listening to Adrian Belew's Side Three for the past month and it is stunning. I have been stuck in my rut of just listening to what I have for most of this year...very few new additions of any worth, but did pick up Baker-Gurvitz Army and a few Amon Duul remasters that get plenty of rotation.

Thank you, Frank - I can only return the compliment

I haven't had the opportunity to listen to Side Three yet (One and Two, I do already have), but I have listened and watched to Baker Gurvitz Army this year when I got their Musikladen DVD and subsequently listened to the albums again.

I have not yet dwelved into the phenomenon of Amon Düül, but I will, that's for sure....
Think of the many different kinds of music, artists and groups us GHCPs are pointing each other to - something new each day! That's great.

Cheers,
Christian
