I am a huge fan of folksongs played on twelve string guitars. Here some of my favourites. Feel free to share yours:

First one is a gem!
Absolutely, I love Mahavishnu Orchestra and most things John McLaughlin is involved with in general.  He's not playing twelve string on this one but side two of it is solo acoustic and might be up your alley, side one is with a full band (includong future members of (Mahavishnu Orchestra) , very etheral and atmospheric (sorry, not trying top hijack the thread).
