East of the river Nile - 77 or 78? Discogs and Wiki seem to vary.
the 2002 CD issue claims to be a 25th anniversary edition, so that looks like '77
I had no idea that was from '77. For some reason I assumed it was from around '81.
If I'd known it'd would've definitely been in my top 10 - it's got lots of good memories for me. When my daughter was a baby rocksteady, lovers and gentle dub always blissed her out, especially if she was upset. That album lived in my car CD player for months and saved many a mealtime.
Sorrow tears and blood came out in '77, not sure if it's as good as International Thief Thief tho, need to give it a relisten.
Tbf it's all about roforofo fight from '72, less polished compared to Zombie, when that bass kicks in you're just locked...
But the album doesn't keep up that momentum - i mean this is Fela we're talking about, even his more middling tracks are great...
This one also from '77. haven't heard it
Fela Aníkúlápó Kuti* And Afrika 70* - No Agreement
Ten hours to go!
S☼I (who appears to be untaggable)
and probably some others too
No Agreement is a slammer.
Come on Hawkfans, your votes are needed.
Sorry, missed it. Had to spend my free time chasing up wanker estate agents.
Shall we? I'll just grab myself a coffee....
I bet it's Rumours
I'm flouncing the boards if it is.
You can go your own way if you must, Danny.
I dont want to know if it is.
=25 Parliament - Live: P-Funk Earth Tour
One of the most thrilling live albums ever released, do not attempt to adjust your radio.
=25 Rush - A Farewell to Kings
What about the voice of Geddy Lee, how did it get so high? I wonder if he talks like an ordinary guy.
24 - Fela Kuti - Sorrow Tears and Blood
Bitter and biting, but beautiful and beguiling. Half an hour you will never regret.
23 - Tom Waits - Foreign Affairs
In here solely for the Bette Midler duet, shorely?
22 - The Jam - In the City
In the City, Batman Theme and some other songs, none of which I can remember.
21 - Wire - Pink Flag
The first post-punk masterpiece, recorded before punk was even dead. Genius.
20 Pink Floyd - Animals
I tried to listen to this again. In fact I succeeded in listening to it, but failed to understand why the hell it is popular. We want Syd!
=18 Miles Davis - Dark Magus
A 1974 recording released after Miles 'retired.' If you only know Kind of Blue, then prepare to have your ears assaulted.
hmm, I have Sorrow Tears & Blood, but thought of it as an EP rather than an album - I would have voted for it. Curses.
=18 Hawkwind - Quark, Strangeness & Charm
Einstein was not a handsome fellow, but he did help to inspire possibly the greatest spacerock album ever made. It's charming, strange, and more than a little quarky.
17 Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True
Welcome to the working...forty odd years in this case. 'Alison' may sound a little bit stalkery these days, but it was the seventies, so....
16 Ian Dury - New boots & Panties
From music hall to rock n roll, with sex and drugs possibly included as well.
15 Throbbing Gristle - Second Annual Report
I will not even try to describe this. take the words 'transgressive', 'electronic' and 'industrial' and randomly insert them into a sentence (any sentence) and you may get close. But probably not.
14 Iggy Pop - The Idiot
Recorded in conjunction with a certain someone's Low, it was a re-affirmation that our suspicions were true – the man was a genius and what a voice!
13 Talking Heads: 77
Not in the top ten? Qu'est-ce que c'est?
