Album of Yesterday

Spirit Trail, by Bruce Hornsby (1998): When I think of the first phase of Bruce's post-Range days (Harbor Lights through the live album, Here Come the Noisemakers), I usually overlook this one. It's not as paradigm shattering as Harbor Lights or consistently excellent as Hot House, and it's easy to skip over it to the superb Noisemakers. But it's still got some very good stuff on it. Some judicious editing could have improved things by getting it all on one disc.
