i just caught myself up on the last ten pages or so that i missed since i thought this thread was locked. Funny how many artists have been posted that i posted already ;-)
hopefully I'll have more to contribute than a snarky comment soon. so glad this thread is back. definitely a few new ones i need to put more listening time into.
I keep meaning to THOROUGHLY go through the entire thread, page-by-page, but at over a 100 pages that's a daunting task.
As far as anything being mentioned twice, I do try to avoid this by using the thread search function but there are so many original recommendations that did not have text name descriptions within the posts, so it's not fool-proof (by all means, feel free to let me know if I've inadvertently repeated any of yours).
However, I do get annoyed, as you've evidently noticed ;-), when people just arrive at the thread and effectively 'SPAM' it by just listing what they happen to like, without making so much as a cursory effort to see if they might be repeating what has already been said a thousand times previously.
I'm not generally the kind of person who takes cyberspace threads 'seriously', per se, (and I'd hate people thinking that I'm that small-minded) but it's just that this thread in particular has grown into something of substance and it'd be nice to keep it that way as much as possible.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to any new suggestions you may have to offer, as you've offered some great stuff here in the past
