I’m looking to build up a collection of contemporary worship CDs and would like recommendations on what to get.  I’m not interested in those collections where artists perform the music of other artists.  Unless a collection is particularly good, I’d rather get original recordings so that I’ll have a feel for the original.

What I’m looking for is something to use for wood-shedding at home.

Thanks.

Try Ivan Parker's "It's True".

Great vocals, with  great horns, and what sounds like a five string fretless.

It super with which to play along as I do it periodically.

I think it came out around last Christmas.  It  was given to mea as a gift and has some really fine material.

Enjoy.

The "Wow Worship" series is a good place to start - there  are some cover versions on there, but most are original.

Some of the artists who are writing most of their own materal and whom I would consider "obligatory listening" are..

Chris Tomlin (though many of his songs are in congregationally "unfriendly" keys - too high)
Paul Baloche
Matt Redman
Tim Hughes

Another great place to get ideas is to go to CCLI and see what artists/songs are in the top 25.   I think that can be a useful barometer for picking artists/material for library building.

Hillsong & Hillsong United albums are great as well. Also check out Phil Wickham.

Lindell Cooley is great. His bassist on "Freedom" is a monster.
Out of Cooley's church in Pensecola came Jessie Rogers, and her "Out of the Fire" will bring you to tears if you have a pulse. She wrote "There is a River" and "Come Down".

Rich Mullins, "A Liturgy, A Legacy and a Ragamuffin Band", IMHO, one of the greatest expressions of love and worship, top to bottom, ever recorded in a studio!
