Neil Young? True there were a few stinkers along the way but he still seems to churn out about a record a year, mostly good stuff. Used to think Ryan Adams fitted into that as well but then he went and got married / sober / happy.

LOVE getting into someone with a ton of records cause you can go a bit mental and listen to nothing else for ages.

I'll nominate Jack White, if you ignore the first Dead Weather album.

Jason Molina

The only musical death of someone I didn't actually know that really affected me...

Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley were my first two musical loves but they both have plenty of turds in their discography.

I think Jeff Lewis is pretty consistently amazing. There might be a couple of duff tracks on each album but each album has at least 2/3 songs that are mind-blowingly good.

Jeff Lewis consistently annoys me... Tastes, eh?

Yeah, he's quite an acquired one. I think I came across him at just the right time in my (quite self-pitying) adolescence. Like I completely understand why people hate Daniel Johnston. Different strokes for different anti-folks, eh?

Speaking of Daniel Johnston, did you hear JY and Adrian Crowley are releasing a covers album? That's angsty music to my ears  :D

Is that different to the 'invaders salute captain America' CD that was on sale a few homegames back? Think it had about four songs each by jy and ac

From what i can tell it's the same but it's been remastered. This is the blurb from Chemikal Underground:

"My Yoke Is Heavy: The Songs of Daniel Johnston"

We're delighted to announce that we'll be releasing 'My Yoke Is Heavy: The Songs of Daniel Johnston' featuring James Yorkston and Adrian Crowley: A homage to the cult American song-writer, the album finds James and Adrian interpreting a selection of Daniel Johnston's beguiling catalogue and will be available from December 6th.

With Johnston's material sitting snugly between merriment and melancholy, who better to have a run at it than our very own Galway balladeer Adrian Crowley and Fife's inestimably lyrical troubadour, James Yorkston?

Limited to 500 vinyl and 500 CDs, 'My Yoke Is Heavy' will be released on Dec 6th and features the following tracklist:

Side A
1. True Love Will Find You In The End
2. My Yoke Is Heavy
3. Held The Hand
4. Like A Monkey In A Zoo

Side B
1. The Sun Shines Down On Me
2. Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Your Grievances
3. Walking The Cow
4. Some Things Last A Long Time

I agree with Dubster about Tom McCrae (I was that hubber) and I'm a massive Springsteen fan, although i wouldnt say I love absolutely everything he's done its close enough.
No one beats KC for outstanding song writing though - in my opinion anyway.
Oh and I would add Withered Hand to the list as well.  I know he hasn't got a massive back catalogue but I have no doubt all of his future albums will be pretty amazing.

Is there another artist whose output as KC's is so consistently good ?

Hello Everyone!  I'm knew here, but not so knew to KC's music.
There have been a lot of great artists mentioned as an answer to this question...
I would also add Joe Henry to the list.

Cheers
