What Is Your Favorite Buddy Miller album?

I don't have any Buddy Miller stuff, but I really wanna buy some. All is fair game, from any era. What is your favorite album the he has done? It's probably pretty obvious, but I'm looking for the best quality songs (I was thinking about Cruel Moon). It doesn't necessarily have to be just him, it can be with his wife, or other collaborators too (ie, Majestic Strings, Jim Lauderdale, etc.). I figured this would be the best place to find out where I should start!Thanks!BenSee More

"The three albums I have are: Nashville (Solomon Burke), Cruel Moon and Universal United House of Prayer. Of these, Nashville is my favorite because of what he brings out Solomon Burke. But everything he has done is excellent!"

"Ben, don't worry about which is the best album, they are all, at least, very very good, so just go ahead and acquire them. Perhaps try and do them chronologically so that you build up to the latest Buddy & Jim. He writes excellent, well…"

"The first Buddy and Julie album (from 2001) is indispensable. It's a perfect balance of emotionally weighted songs and lighter music with an edge, all with Buddy's hand-crafted sound."
