While spending an inordinate amount of time on the Acoustic Guitar Forum this week (o.k., every week), we were struck by a question posted by a user on the best albums that feature a singer-songwriter on acoustic guitar. While some of the obvious choices were mentioned (is anybody surprised to see Eric Clapton Unplugged on the list?), there were a few choices that we didn’t expect. We were especially shocked by the album that got the most mentions. We like the one whose picture we chose for this story, but that one wasn’t the #1 choice. If you want to know which album was mentioned most often by guitarists in the forum, read on.
First of all, the biggest surprise was the album that was cited most often as the favorite live album featuring the acoustic guitar and recorded live. That distinction went to Jackson Browne Solo Acoustic Volume 1 and Volume 2. A complete list of the top albums chosen (in no particular order) is below. Needless to say, they are all worth a listen.
