Oh, I'll go ahead and nominate Dark Country Magic by Big Blood. It's an incredibly catchy, well-written psychedelic folk album with experimental tendencies.

Ry Cooder & Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (1992)



Either this album or a later collaboration with Jerry Douglas. This one seems easier to find.

^ Thanks for this nomination - it`s an album I`ve always been planning to investigate, so I`ll be interested to see how it gets on.

Although it`s a day or two late, I`ll open a new poll thread for albums later this evening.

I actually preferred the sound of the Jerry Douglas collaboration Bourbon & Rosewater but it seems hard to come by.

Thanks, fazstp, I`ll put Bourbon and Rosewater into the poll, when I get a minute to open the thread; just now I find myself snowed under with work stuff.

Irish Heartbeat by Van Morrison and the Chieftains (1988)



After building up a huge following in their own right, the Irish folk band, The Chieftains, finally teamed up with fellow country-man Van Morrison to produce an album that should have a wide appeal.

Eight of the ten tracks are fresh and powerful reworkings of traditional songs; the lyrics do not disappoint and Van Morrison`s unique delivery will send a chill down the most jaded of spines. Add to that the full range of the Chieftains` fiddles, pipes and bodhràn, and you have an album that succeeds on many levels. You can play it loudly and be swept away by the swirling music, or play it softly and it still sounds great. There are moments of joy, nostalgia and mystery, and a heartfelt version of Carrickfergus in which VM pulls out all the stops.

VM also contributes two of his own more reflective compositions (including the title track) that fit well into the album although I consider the traditional material much stronger. Well, give the album a listen and you can decide for yourself !
I love this thread.

Great bluesy vocals on this first release from Karen Dalton.


This is the opening track. Her version of the Fred Neil track A Little Bit of Rain.

Welcome to the club,Cru Hoor, and thanks for the nomination.

The medieval-looking Gary Higgins will be entered in the next poll (June 7). Is "Red Hash" the name of the album that you`re nominating ?

Glad that you enjoyed the Karen Dalton album from stp. Did you notice that the opening post of this thread has a list of all the albums nominated so far ? That`s where you`ll find this link, where you can read/vote/ comment about KD :-

I assume the Huun Huur Tu nomination was one of your finds Lisnaholic? I must say I am blissfully obsessed with it at the moment. The Bulgarian choir marries beautifully with the Tuvan throat singing. Great stuff
