Best Original CDs I've Found This Past Decade

A Listmania! list by highwayman-B (U.S.A and Canada)
The list author says: "I don't know about you, but I find that most CDs/albums by even my favorite artists have only a few really good numbers and the rest are filler. Artists spread themselves pretty thin. So below are the CDs from this past decade that I find the most listenable throughout, with very few tedious tracks."
Picture in a Frame
1.  Picture in a Frame by Willie Nelson
The list author says:
  "Superb collection of duets with Willie Nelson. If you aren't a fan of both artists already, this should win you over. Most songs written by Kimmie except for IT ALWAYS WILL BE, written by Willie."

Closer To The Bone
28.  Closer To The Bone by Kris Kristofferson

Above the Ground
29.  Above the Ground by Burton Cummings

  "4 fine songs: ANY MINOR MIRACLE, INVISIBLE, A TOUCH OF MORNING, POWERS AT PLAY and a good number that are so-so make this CD worth having. Some songs make me worry if Burton is heading for the dark side. Only 2 concerts in 2010 worried me too, but big tour planned for 2011.  Whew!"
