  1. 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

    What about the voice of Geddy Lee, how did it get so high? I wonder if he talks like an ordinary guy.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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....

    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.

    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!
