    Phil Keaggy is so good. If you need some great playing as a background for your quiet morning, here you go. Pick up a copy to support him...

    Chops? Long, Long, very long list; but right now Vincente Amigo, Leo Kottke and Jose Felicano come to mind.

    Well, may not be "smokin'" acoustic stuff, but a LOT of Cat Stevens work had some very tasteful acoustics on it. As mentioned previously by @Single_tone, Bron Yr Aur is one of my favorites ever. I have heard it is actually named after the cottage they were staying in when working on Physical Graffiti! Of course, also mentioned by OP and @sergiodeblanc, the guitar trio (everything they ever did). I love the way they have one guitar in each channel and the third mixed to both channels. Talk about falling in love with a good pair of headphones, their work can make that happen!!! Dylan's newest album "Rough 'n Rowdy Ways" is great overall in my opinion (I literally feel it is his best since "Blood On The Tracks" 37 years ago) and has a couple of descent acoustic numbers on it. Garcia & Grisman did some fun stuff acoustically. One of my favs ever is Pink Floyd's "Fearless". Of course, pretty much all of what I have listed here is not pure acoustic guitar amazement, but this is what I got. Looking forward to checking out others recommendations!!!

    Can't wait to hear the "Saturday Night In San Francisco" that Al Di Meola talked about in his PRS Long Distance interview. Considering how great FNISF was, SNISF should be equally stellar!!!

    Sorry but I can't do just 3.

    I owe the world to these four guys, they were massive influences to how I approach acoustic guitar:

    Phil Keaggy - The Master and the Musician



    Willy Porter - Dog Eared Dream



    Billy McLaughlin - Fingerdance



    Michael Hedges - Aerial Boundaries

    "Rite of Strings" wasn't solely focusing on guitar but it's easily one of my favorite acoustic recordings of all time.
    Al Di Meola, Jean Luc Ponty, Stanley Clarke
