There are so many to choose from, but I'll go with "Hasten Down the Wind" by Linda Ronstadt. Used to listen to that one over and over again, back in the day. Sad to hear that Linda Ronstadt can no longer sing due to Parkinson's Disease.

Rocky Mountain High - John Denver

I still get the lump in my throat heading up into the snow capped mountains.

A current favorite is by the Pittsburgh jazz ensemble White Tie Group "Plays Well With Others".

I also like anything by Jaio or Bebel Gilberto and also Sade. I have an old favorite... Natalie Cole singing songs of her father, Nat King Cole entitled "Unforgettable".

My vote is James Taylor's "October Road". Especially two songs: "Fourth of July" and "Mean Old Man".

I find it the perfect album to fall asleep to or nap to.
Even when the alarm clocks go off in Time? My ex- got really po'd on a road trip when I was listening to that as she was resting and that came on.

Ludovico Einaudi - mellow piano. It was the perfect music to play when I drove through Glacier National Park a couple of years ago.

But Dark Side is good too . . .

I like MANY listed here. Especially Dark Side. I'll list something a bit different, and more modern. No-Man - Only Rain (Returning Jesus) - YouTube

Live at Newport by Muddy Waters. Blues at its best.

I must have a thousand albums and there is not a single favorite "mellow" one. Maybe, Northern Exposure sound tracks fit the description best.

Thirty four years ago, my soon to be bride asked me to put on some "party music" as we were getting ready to go out for the night. I put on Willie Nelson's Stardust album. She couldn't believe that I considered this to be party music and still to this day gives me a hard time about it. Looking back on this, I have to agree it was a poor choice for party music, but it still gets my vote for best mellow music.

I don't know where to put this one, so I'll put it here. A little while ago I mentioned Arlo Guthrie and that got me to thinking about Pete Seeger. Here's a tune from South Africa that made its way to the Americas, was recorded by many groups, notably the folk group The Weavers, and was licensed to Disney who added words which is how most people know of it. Pete Seeger got the name wrong, it's not "Wimoweh".

Hey-yup boys! Sing it on New Years!

Spent part of today listening to old vinyl records and found this one that I haven't listened to in probably 20 years.

The best mellow music, IMHO.

Three albums came to mind quickly when I read the title of the thread - Tea for the Tillerman (Cat Stevens), Lightfoot (really old folkie Gordon Lightfoot) and Stardust (Willie Nelson). Haven't heard any of these in many years. Someone mentioned JJ Cale. That might be the best pick of all.

I am reposting this, without editing out the video, because we will not hear new music from Pete Seeger again.

The guy changed things and for the better.
