Eagles "Long road out of Eden"
Jason Mraz "We sing, we dance, we steel things".
Jack Johnson "Sleep through the static".
Leonard Cohen "The essential Leonard Cohen".
John Hammod Jr "Wicked Grin".
Ismael Lo "Iso"
Terrence Trent D'Arby "Introducing the hardline"
If you can pick the bones out of that lot, you may find something you like........let me know if you do.
I've had a quick five second listen to them all and that Eagles album seems like it could be very good.
Jason Mraz is ok too. I already have his song I'm Yours in my collection.
A friend of mine at work plays Jack Johnson. It makes nice and pleasent background music but not really the sort of thing that I'd buy though.
Leonard Cohen isn't much to my taste. I did recognise the song Suzanne from a Plan B track by the same name. That's a genuinly shocking song that made me cringe a bit when I first heard it. It's a true story about the Camdeon ripper.
John Hammod isn't much to my taste either because I've never been a blues fan. The only exception is the album The Best of Friends by John Lee Hooker. Very cool album.
Ismael Lo reminds me of holiday music. It seems nice. I'll give it a go sometime.
Terence Trent D'arby - Sign Your Name. Now there's a blast from the past. I've just added that song to my 'Miscellaneous songs' Spotify list.

I have a strange eclectic taste in music, so if you found anything new, that is good.
I appreciate you took the trouble to try it. That Eagles double album is terrific.
Did you find any Bodeans?

I have a strange eclectic taste in music
I mostly listen to classical music, rock music, 80's pop music, rave music, some (not much) hip hop and easy listening.
That sounds quite nice. I'll give them a proper go tomorrow.
Thanks for the suggestions.
It has been a pleasure.
Sorry to be boring, but I am another one who rates Sheffield Steel as his best album. As mentioned previously the rhythm section of Sly & Robbie on this recording just cannot be bettered IMO. In my top 5 albums of all time
Also got a soft spot for Stingray, recorded a few years before SS, but well worth a listen. Very laid back.

Try Hard Knocks. The newest album, absolutely brilliant and on par with the earlier material.

I've been listening to some more Joe Cocker on Spotify over the last couple of weeks and 'Hard Knocks' is one of the best so I've just bought the CD.
