Tommy Emmanuel

A finger picking style guitar virtuoso from Australia who will sure leave you spell bound with his style of playing. His acoustic music, though rooted in folk and prog-folk, draws inspirations from jazz, classical and other forms of music too. He is very much influenced by Chet Atkins, who hail him as the greatest contemporary finger picking guitarist.

You can read about him here. I am posting 3 of his great albums.

U2 - Rattle & Hummm

U2 was a band which burst into the scene in the eighties with the New Wave sound and captivated the rock music audience. Their music swept many off their feet and needless to say, I was one of the victims. They were one of the 10 favourite bands that I used to admire at that time. Although later on they failed to impress me as much as they did in the beginning of their career.

They released quite a few albums during the eighties and early nineties which quickly became very popular amongst their cult following - Boy, War, Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby. But this one concert album delivers the essence of their music to the world. This one album definitely says it all about their music and their sound! Bob Dylan and B. B. King joined the U2 on stage during this concert as special guests.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable album from start to finish and is regarded as one of the 100 best albums in the history of Rock music!
