40 Year Itch: Reinventing the Jazz Guitar

Pat Metheny : Sirabhorn

  On his debut album, Pat Metheny teams up with Jaco Pastorius ( On one of his earliest recordings) and drummer Bob Moses for an ethereal jazz release free of all the effects later Metheny albums would have. On "Sirabhorn", named for a Siamese princess, Metheny plays a 12-string electric guitar with a unique tuning. Not sure any 1976 album has grown me as much as this one.
