Grateful Dead "Dick's Picks Volume 8" 3CD [Grateful Dead Records]—I love telling people I like the Grateful Dead because a lot of them automatically assume that I am stupid immediately afterwards. It's great because then I get to feel like Matlock. Discs two and three of this set are really far out and the guitar playing gets really fried in an almost Sharrock-like level during "Morning Dew." Still the best Dick's Pick ever. 

Psychedelic Horseshit "Magic Flowers Droned" LP [Siltbreeze] 

Wizzard "Brew" CD [EMI] 

Progressiv TM "Dreptul de a visa" CD [Global Recordings]—Double drummer Romanian hard rock with flute in the vein of Phoenix or something from South America like Vox Dei. 

Harmonia "Deluxe" CD [Brain/SPV]—I preferred their debut for years but now this one has reclaimed first place. 

Hassara "Backyard I-III" CD [Three Lobed]—Wonderful cosmic solo guitar hard rock atmospheric jams that remind me a lot of Lobdell but also hippie / hardrock guys like Lobby Loyde and Randy Holden.
