    There is a cool version of Message In a Bottle by Sting on an album called Secret Policeman's Ball. It's probably on some other Sting CD's or videos as well. I also like Pete Townshend's accoustic work.

    The best cover of an acoustic Led Zeppelin song is Over the Hills and Far Away by Mike Broadman. I keep forgetting the changes- it's quite embarrassing.

    But the mother of all Zep acoustic tunes is White Summer.

    Acoustic albums? Easy: Blue- Joni Mitchell

    Laurence Juber's acoustic guitar arrangement of "Strawberry Fields Forever" on his "Guitar Noir" DVD-A from AIX is just about the most beautiful thing I've heard on the instrument in years. The rest of the album is fantastic as well!

    Cheers,

    How about "My Father's House" by Bruce Springsteen, or the whole "Nebraska" album for that matter?
