    Hmmm. Springsteen (due to all the live shows available), Pat Metheny, Vangelis, Eno, Bowie, various classical and jazz, Yo Yo Ma and that Goat Rodeo stuff was surprising good.

    I notice I have been moving away from rock music over the years.

    Bing Crosby - so much great material its hard not to.
    Fairport Convention - The Come All Ye box set has been listened to a lot. 7 CDS and each one a gem.....led to delving back into other albums. Plus the 50/50@50 album was brilliant.
    Jethro Tull - been really spending a bit of time with those deluxe sets and ALL that material to digest
    Martin Carthy - 2017 was they year I picked up the remaining albums from his discography that I wanted

    Slayer, Motorhead, Megadeth & Anthrax are staples when I am in the Gym.

    larla Ó Lionaird
    Tim Story & Hans-Joachim Roedelius
    Christopher Franke
    Donald Fagen
    Tim Bowness
    Steven Wilson

    Hard to narrow it down to ten acts because I listened to a lot of music throughout the year, often moving from act to act, listening to individual tracks. Here is a list of acts, not in any particular order, that collectively I probably listened to the most during last year:

    Grateful Dead
    Miles Davis
    Elvis Presley
    Fleetwood Mac
    The Eagles
    Eric Clapton
    Bob Dylan
    John Coltrane
    Jeff Beck
    The Beach Boys
