82.Loudon Wainwright III - You Mother and I (More Love Songs, 1986)
Wainwright writes with more precision and imagination than any other singer-songwriter of the current boom, and his melodies stick with you. He sings and plays with such authority that even though this record features only voice and acoustic guitar it's powerful musically.More Love Songs is the best album in his career: this has the greatest sequence of songs he's ever managed to put on record. Enjoyable from the start to the end.'Your Mother & I' is possibly one of the most beautiful songs ever written.
