Your top 3 albums this week?
Here’s the script, you have to have listened to them in the last week, what’s yer top 3?
I’m going for:
NWA straight out of compton, I mind listening to this when i was about 11, I thought to myself, what pish, fast forward a couple of decades, I’ve went for a relisten, great album! reckon I’m going to take myself on an 80s rap album tour next, have never quite got the whole rap thing tbh!
Olatunji, Drums of passion, first ever recording of african drums in the 50s, tis **** brilliant!
and Curtis Mayfield, Curtis! superfly has always been one of my favourite albums, venturing in to more curtis this week though, tis all good!
Right, so lets be having them!Posted 4 years agoDezBSubscriber
Bob Dylan – Highway 61 Revisited (cos I just bought it after a thread on here (it’s not as good as Bringing it All Back Home))
Breton – War Stories (band that can’t do wrong for me, love em.)
Scott Walker – Sings Jacques Brel. (Sky Arts docu last week made me play this)
Not big on listening to full albums, usually they go on the ipod, then shuffle. But have listened to those 3 more than once in the last week.Posted 4 years agorewskiMember
Didn’t expect Cymande to be on here, one of my fave bands, Dove never left my record box, Bra and The Message are tunes too.
I’ve been going through some old albums:
Lights Out: San Francisco (Voco Presents The Soul Of The Bay Area)Posted 4 years ago
Madvillainy – Madvillain
Calender – It’s a MonsterCountZeroMember
I usually only get chance to really indulge myself and listen to full albums on Friday and Saturday evenings, otherwise it’s 6Music during the day, and shuffled tracks on the phone, but I’ve been on holiday this week, and I’ve had a download of Elbow’s new album, The Take Off And Landing Of Everything playing on the phone, and the CD arrived yesterday, so listened to it again last night, along with a couple of Handsome Family albums, Honey Moon, and Singing Bones, prompted by watching True Detective.Posted 4 years ago
Not sure what I’ll be listening to tonight and tomorrow yet.ourmaninthenorthSubscriber
Muchacho de Lujo by Phosphecent (with the live album)
The Paul Simon Songbook by, er, Paul Simon
Otto Klemperer Conducts, a 10 CD set of live recordings of a load of Bruckner, Brahms and Beethoven (cost less than a tenner – amazing!)
Makes a nice change buying old music. I’m not feeling too guilty for not listening to new music.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
According to my iTunes data i have been listening to :
Minilogue – The Island of If, a new release by the swedish electronic geniuses, in the link highlighted is a 23 min video jam session of new work.
Erased Tapes Collection IV (scroll down), one of the outstanding compilation series collections of Erased Tapes Artists.
The new EP by Grandbrothers – Ezra , simply outstanding work and mastered to perfection.
There are a few others but that’s my top 3 so far out of 37hrs of music.Posted 4 years ago
