My 20 Shuffles – Part 2

OK here is the second part of my list:

12. Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down – The Three Pickers (Ricky Scaggs, Doc Watson and Earl Scruggs – The Three Pickers – I love the artistry of all three of these men but especially Ricky Scaggs. I recently had the opportunity to spend 2 days at a prayer meeting with him and by the end of the two days he had stopped being a “big star” and was simply a brother in Christ knowing how needy he was.

13. Love Conquers All – Nanci Griffith –Hearts in Mind – At one time I thought I did not need any female vocalist in my collection other than Emmylou until my daughter told me one day: “Your really need to listen to Nanci Griffith”. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

14. Boss Jack – Johnny Cash – Ride this Train – Cash has a big place in my IPod

15. Baby Step Back – Gordon Lightfoot – Gordon Lightfoot Songbook- Great reminder of high school

16. Can’t Help But Wonder Where I’m Bound – Johnny Cash – American VI , Ain’t No Grave – See above. Also this is a great Tom Paxton song. Great American songwriter who never got the notice he should have

17. West Texas Waltz – Emmylou Harris – Portraits, Disc 3 – One of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. I do not think I have ever heard a bad recording by her

18. The Streets of Laredo – Johnny Cash – America IV, The Man Comes Around – Johnny Cash singing a cowboy song, what could be better

19. These Dreams of You – Van Morrison – Laughing in the Wind- The older I get the more I like Van the man.

20. Don’t Cry Now – Tony Bennett – Playin With My Friends – I once used a Tony Bennett song as a sermon illustration and was told that I was “out of it”. Debbie and I heard him live several years ago and it is still one of my best concert memories.

21. No. 3 in D – Franz Liszt – 6 Hungarian Rhapsodies – Just to let you guys know there is some classical on my Pod

22. 1914 – Randy Newman – Soundtrack from Avalon – Some of the best music for just listening, thinking and relaxing is found on movie soundtracks. This is a good one but not one of my favorites. Great movie however.

Well I said 20 and I gave you 22. Just had to get these last two in.
