One the best things about buying CDs nowadays is that your can hear some cuts before you buy them. My local Barnes & Noble has listening stations setup with headphones. You take the CD you are interested in to the station, scan the barcode, and pieces of most of the tracks are made available to listen.

In the past month, I have gotten the following CDs, and if you get a chance, I recommend you have a listen.

Jack Johnson - In Between Dreams
Mindi Abair - Come As You Are
Pat Metheny Group - The Way Up
Gavin DeGraw - Chariot
Rachael Yamagata - Happenstance

curtis, I spent about an hour and a half at Borders going over the listening stations. Had a deal going--buy 3, get the 4th one free. Funny, I went in there not wanting to spend money. Oh well, 4 cds later. . .
Picked up Rachael Yamagata a month ago after reading a good review about it. Pretty much a blind purchase (or is it deaf?), but turned out to be a good cd. Haven't had a chance to get the Jack Johnson cd. I'm afraid my list of cds to get is growing out of hand.

I've got the Gavin Degraw and Jack Johnson. Both worthwhile pickups. I will checkout the others. Thanks for the post. I always feel kind of guilty because I listen at Barnes and Noble for a few hours and then end up buying the cd's somewhere else for $5 cheaper.

I picked up Rachael Yamagata's 'Happenstance' a couple of days ago, nice music. I have XM radio in my vehicle and whenever a good tune comes on I'll save it in memory, write it down and take my list whenever I go music shopping. Sometimes I get burned though, recently I picked up Eric Sardinas 'Black Pearls' and don't really care too terribly much for it, a little too much in your face with the vocals for me. But as usual, in the MegaChanger it goes anyway.

Oh btw, just curious if any of you folks listen to John Hiatt? 'A&M Years', 'Tiki Bar' and 'Beneith this Gruff Exterior' are all good, actually I like just about anything from him.

I'm a recent John Hiatt fan, I've only got two CDs (Tiki Bar, Corssing Muddy Waters), but I've seen him live (with Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark, and Joe Ely) twice.

In reply to:

Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark, and Joe Ely



great song writers..

i have seen lyle and guy clark live, but not joe ely. i actually sing a couple of their songs, well i used to. probably forgot them by now.

guy clark is just 'the man' on stage. so calm, cool, and oblivious to whats happening around him. he could be playing to a packed auditorium, and to him, he could just as easily be playing in a rocking chair on the front porch.
