Los Lonely Boys - Sacred
I only remembered I had this album sometime last week, and I swear it's been sitting there for years being very unappreciated 'til lately. This is one of the most fun albums I've listened to in quite some time. The slower moments have such unique way about them, the guitars are absolutely nuts in the livelier moments - latin rock at its finest, basically.
James Carr - You Got My Mind Messed Up
And here's another one that's been neglected for a while 'til recently. I think that's because I've already got the classics off it on a load of classic soul/r'n'b comps of mine (Dark End Of the Street, Pouring Water On a Drowning Man, That's What I Want To Know). Certainly one of the most consistent albums of its ilk that I've heard, and's probably worked its way into my all-time list.
Lissie - Catching a Tiger
Some great singles, but there are lot of mediocre to poor tunes filling virtually the rest of this album up. It falls into that pitfall of a lot of other bright, chirpy, pop-centric albums then.
