Hi guys guys I am trying to compile a collection of acoustic music - for anyone interested in expanding their musical taste I would appreciate if you posted here. 
 
I am always looking for new acoustic music because I love to listen to this genre with HD800 partly because acoustic music just sounds great with this particular headphone. 
 
I am personally more interested in older acoustic music especially music recorded between 1950 - 1975 but any album from any genre is welcome.

All of the albums by Jerry Garcia and David Grisman are terrific, but best to start with this one




The recent MFSL vinyl reissue is INCREDIBLE.

I was just going to post Bills Evan: Complete Village Vangard Recordings. One of my top five recordings of all time.

I love really well recorded acoustic music so I'm in.
 
A couple I've been into lately.
 
This one is great if you are into a certain type of Texas sound. Very simplistic but really captures the early '70's bar ambiance.

 
And in a different vein, The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings is Coltrane at his finest and it sounds fantastic to boot.

chamber music definitely does. By the way I love Lenny Breau. 
 
Quinto what 50's acoustic would you recommend? Is there anything out there similar to The Kingstown Trio that you might have heard? 
 
I love this song ¬

Sorry! I zoned out... That is the Osborne Bros, not the Stanley Bros... Here is the DVD that is excerpted from.
 
http://www.amazon.com/Bluegrass-Country-Soul-Albert-Ihde/dp/B000GDI2KG/
 
But there is a great set of DVDs of the Stanley's 1960s TV show too.
