trouble with focusing on albums is there's entire genres which get sidelined - and certainly plenty of stuff i couldn't live without - classic soul and r&b, loads of ska and reggae, a lot of 60s garage rock and 70s punk, performers like dusty springfield and aretha franklin - where the focus was less on albums and more on individual tracks - so any album listing is always skewed towards guitar rock.
Frontline presents Reggae Discomixes.
Ironically I can't find it now. I looked it up and there's one with a blue cover but I think it had a brown sleeve.
Yeah, Stranglers are a good one! I just added "Duchess" to my busking set. One of those where you can just hear the chord progression without looking it up (rare for me). Managed to teach myself the song in 10 minutes and it goes down well with the public.
Indeed. Excluding compilations left me with no Sam Cooke, Sinatra or New Order

Ive played all the albums i cant live without so many times i can live without them now
In fact I cant really think of any one tune Id be all that upset if i never heard again ... so long as i still get to hear all the other millions of records out there I think I'll be happy
yeh this really... ohh here is a question: If you had a choice where you either had to never hear any new music again but were allowed to listen to stuff you'd already heard as much as you like, OR you were allowed to listen to as much thus-unheard music as you wanted but never listen to your oldies, which would you pick!
good question! id pick new music without a doubt
much as i love old music (both music from the past, and music i already know), its discovering new things that keeps me inspired and positive about the future, wouldn't want to live without that
*that said the more music you already know the shitter this deal is but I'll stick with it. it'll pay off over time
My first instinct was to go with new music definitely, but then when I started thinking about it and all the stuff I'd lose if I gave up old music.... well I am glad we don't have to pick ha
ha yeah, the same, did the sums and saw what was on the balance sheet...ouch...but onwards ever backwards never
its really going to fuck up my oldskool dj sets though
Pink Fairies and T Rex FTW.
would go for old music mostly. don't even like new music really, and especially most new dance music. i mean, i still love loads of new tunes and albums on a technical, production and aesthetic level, don't get me wrong, but the culture is not for me, i don't feel a lot of new dance music. all branding and mixmag. few weeks ago there was a controversy and that was literally all it was. a public stunt.
