A Thousand Songs (2015 Reissue)

logusbogus A hit-and-miss album that hits really hard, and misses moderately. A Thousand Songs easily contains some of Guthrie's best work to date and it's Lo-Fi feeling is a refreshing change of pace in comparison to Guthrie's other works, but I wouldn't shame someone for not getting it right away.

Thankfully, the 2015 Reissue version contains unique bonus tracks that serve as remakes and modern interpretations of songs on the album. All of them are p. good in their own ways. Favorite track: Invisible Gem.

David Giles A highly underrated album. If you love lo-fi music, this is for you. While it might be a bit too odd for most people, if this is your type of music, you will absolutely love this. Favorite track: The Fantabulous World Of Jimmy 3-Guts.

Sudaksis It is really difficult to listen to this album without finding something deeply personal about it to suit you. A timeless record of some of the best of Jim's early days as a musician. Favorite track: Focus On Floor Care.
