1. "Sweet Baby James", James Taylor: The fact that "sweet" is in the title is quite apt. What else needs to be said? Beautiful, beautiful record.

2. "Court and Spark", Joni Mitchell: Something about female voices in the early AM. Joni is a genius songwriter and a great vocalist. I only have three of her records, but this is my favorite.

3. "Hope and Desire", Susan Tedeschi: Just a stunning, mellow and pretty record, perfect AM music.

4. "Falling In Love With Jazz", Sonny Rollins: You could put many, many jazz records on this list, I know. Few would fit better than this beautiful record.

5. "Laid Back", Gregg Allman: I don't need to tell any peachheads; it doesn't get any more pretty than this.

6. "Highway Call", Richard Betts: OK, OK, I cheated, I was going to only name five. How can I give "Laid Back" a nod without mentioning Dickey's country classic, which is every bit as good?

What would peachheads add to my list?

How early in the morning are you talking about?

I like to hear Coltrane, Miles ... Oteil and the Peacemakers at about 3:00AM ... 'specially if I'm buzzin that late. Early, I mean.

This thread reminds me of my brother calling our local community radio station during the morning show a few years ago, and requesting Desert Skies by MTB. The programmer told him that wasn't "morning show" material.
Huh?! Not only is DS a GREAT song to hear morning OR night, but what is morning music other than music YOU like to hear, in the morning?!

How could you not listen to this in the morning, 'specially with brother Toy playing and singing.

Too funny!...And that, in a nutshell....is why I can not listen to "Classic Rock"...on the radio.

For a period of time after it came out, my parents played Van Morrison's "Back On Top" every Saturday morning while doing their weekly housecleaning. The music carried through the walls of my bedroom during the summer when I was home from college, and that album always comes to mind when thinking of morning music.

Haven't listened to that album in probably 15 years, but from what I remember, it was pretty decent, with a few real gems on it -- there was a song about time slipping away, that I remember was really good.

I always love playing the long Jessica from 2nd Set on weekend mornings, or to start off car trips.

Monk's Dream: Thelonius Monk. Makes for a bright, creative a.m...played this for friends who aren't as big of music-lovers while hosting Sunday brunch and they couldn't shut up about

Great call by matt05 on Waylon's This Time. Was just playin' "Mona" on the guitar...Hoss' sensitive side...lol!

This man likes to start the day Mountain climbing. You have to admire that kind of energy.

I've posted this before...and yes it's boring, but true.

At one time I lived in Islamorada, Fl...on the beach...facing east. On occassion if I found myself up at the crack of dawn I would put Uriah Heep 'Live' on. The first song was 'Sunrise'....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3LH69kkgYM <------video of that song. Yes the pants suit is a little much now.

I would stand there facing the sunrise and blow my eardrums into the next yard!

RIP David and Gary, you gave us some great music!

Good call on Laid Back. Also, Kind of Blue as someone else noted.

John Baldry -- Everything Stops For Tea (The most folky of his albums, though there are a couple of blues rockers on it)

Waylon Jennings -- Honky Tonk Heroes

Howlin' Wolf -- Moanin' in the Moonlight/S/T (Now, I know what you're thinking, his voice is too intense for the morning...but the arrangements themselves are great for late night or early morning listening.)

Ahmad Jamal -- Live at the Pershing

Keb' Mo' -- S/T

Freddie King -- Burglar

John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (Sweet, tasteful playing, great for the morning)

Willie Nelson -- Stardust

Well, I was able to cut the list down to eight.

Do you know if there are multiple versions of the Glenn Gould performances of this, Ron? I've heard and read I should seek out his version, but I'm pretty sure I've seen somewhere that a certain version is more favorable than the other...
