I've read people's choice of music with interest on this and other threads and will certainly be checking them out. New music (or new to one's self) is always great to listen to and I'm always on the lookout for suggestions for new inspiration. However, and this is probably at a bit of a tangent to the thread but might be appropriate, I'm interested to hear what forum users might consider 'essential' recordings that all CG players should listen to at least once. For example, I've drawn a lot of inspiration and a deeper love of the classical guitar repertoire from:
John Williams - Spanish Guitar Music, Bach Lute Suites and El Diablo Suelta
Nicholas Goluses' recordings of Fernando Sor
Christopher Parkening's Tribute To Segovia
The Deutsche Gramaphone 2 CD Segovia Collection
Any other suggestions to fill the rather large gaps in my knowledge of the CG catalogue would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. Summer - The steel string players you mentioned are all fantastic and all opened my eyes to the potential of fingerstyle guitar, which in turn eventually led to my interest in CG - so I'm not sure it is heresy
I've seen both Renbourn and Jansch in concert and can unreservedly recommend both as fantastic live artists and consummate musicians
