This isn't a question about recordins you like, per se, just recordings that sound really good to your ears. For me, I can never get over Deep Purple's "Machine Head." Everything breathes on that record. It sounds so effortless and pure, although I'm sure it a lot of work to get it so good.

Another favourite is "River In Reverse," by Alan Toussaint and Elvis Costello. There's no obvious trickery or gimmicks. Just a great band delivering top performances. Again, I'm sure there's a lot going behind the scenes, but there's nothing that draws attention to itself.

What say you guys?

Ry Cooder's "Bop 'Till You Drop" album sounds terrific.

His guitars sound extra sharp and clear.

Nicely produced from beginning to end, and a long-time favorite of mine.

As far as 90’s guitar albums, it’s hard to top the Gin Blossoms’ “New Miserable Experience.”

@Ragtop... Good call. I've been listening to Bop Til You Drop and Borderline a fair bit in the past couple of weeks. I remember when Bop came out. I bought it because it was billed as the first album to be fully recorded on digital technology. I was curious... knew next to nothing about Ry Cooder at the time. Very happy with that purchase over the decades.

I always admired the production of Paul Samwell-Smith on Cat Stevens LPs.

And I still think that Jimmy Page is Rock God Producer Supreme.

langford, I almost mentioned that it was the first to be recorded digitally, but I wasn't sure if I was remembering that accurately.

My daughter now has all of my albums, but I have it on a cassette that I recorded from the brand-new album, and it still sounds really good.

BS&T II was to my ear a very well produced album.

Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, the Buena Vista Social Club, come to mind. In it’s day Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.

The best way for me to measure that would be to pick a dream producer to work with, and that'd likely be Mitchell Froom. His work on the first 3 Crowded House records and Elvis Costello's "Mighty Like a Rose" hits the sweet spot of my Pop ears.

Jhawkr is right. That BS&T second album was indeed a great-sounding album.

Lloyd Maines' production work on the Dixie Chicks' "Home" was a bravo performance, that I thought really stood out. I believe he did win an award for that.
