Keith Jarrett 'Koln Concert'Purely improvised piano at one of the peaks of Jarretts career. Quite masterful.Steve Reich 'Music For 18 Musicians'The blueprint for much modern music. Never gets old.David Sylvian 'Secrets of the Beehive'....Well, this is really tied with 'Gone to Earth', these are the best albums in his catalogue to me. Stark, naked and contemplative. Strings and horn arrangements by Sakamoto.Pat Metheny Group 'Offramp''Are You Going With Me' just about sums up what I like about mu...

1. Nine Inch Nails: Year ZeroAfter the disappointing 'With Teeth', this is NIN back to their best. Brutal. 2. Dave Clarke: Remixes & RaritiesIt’s easy to forget just how many classic tracks DC has released. This contains many, including the beautiful ‘Affirmative Magnolia’.3. Curve: The Way of CurveToni Halliday’s haunting voice contrasts perfectly with harsh industrial sounds on this great compilation.4. Kraftwerk: NumbersI can never get enough of this track. It’s unbelievable to think it’s...

The Carstairs ‘It Really Hurts Me Girl’ U.S. Red Coach Records 7”No apologies for including this, because it is simply The Greatest Record Of All Time. I even created a MySpace page for it - This is of course, only my opinion. However if you like early 70's New York dance with a full orchestra and string section with a brilliant song and the vocals reaching the pinnacle of soulful expression, then this one's for you baby! Check the link and tell me I'm wr...

1. LONDON IS THE PLACE FOR ME - LORD KITCHENER (HONEST JON1S)Penned on the boat from Jamaica to the UK in the 1950s, this upbeat earlycalypso ditty celebrates London in a way that is only possible if you havenever been. 3 years later he was writing tracks about his beautiful Jamaica.Fabulous. 2. GRINDERMAN - NO PUSSY BLUES (MUTE)All hail Nick Cave and his most recent side-project. On his latest outing,Nick ditches the ballad and the piano and embraces, nay makes passionatelove to, the electric g...

Sufjan Stevens - IllinoisLife would be much easier if I could stick to the simple fact that "there's no good music that's been made after 1974". Yet every now and then I'm surprised to hear something that's new, fres(ss)h and something completely different (and not been taken from an unreleased 60's master tape). In my books Sufjan's the most talented modern pop composer, and what's even better, he still seems to be accompanied by the spirit of "but wait, there's more!"David Axelrod - Release Of...

1. Micheal Jackson - Thriller Album - Impossible to pick any one track of his and for me MJ is the man. 2. Stevie Wonder - SuperstitionThe guy is a genius and again its difficult to pick one track but this is a classic that'll get anybodys feet moving. 3. Bob Marley - No Woman No CrySo many wicked tracks to chose from, especially with The Legend album but this track is my fave of his and always gets peoples full attention.  4. SugarHill Gang - Rappers DelightIs there anybody that doesn't know al...

Public Image Limited - Metal BoxI was a punk rocker, working in a record shop when this came out. I was so excited to pry open the film container and shake out the vinyl  to listen to new music from Johnny Rotten! The record totally  confused me. I think it took me more than ten years to really begin  to get my head around what was happening in this music. 'Poptones' and 'Socialist' are in frequent rotation at my house. The record continues to have a life of its own in my collection.Pere Ubu - D...

Born Under Punches Talking Heads / SireSH - I'm a bit obssesed with eno productions from around this period - the polyrythmic percussion, tape delays and guitars - so dense but still sounds minimal somehow, completely ahead of its time. "Les Fleurs" Minnie Ripperton / CapitolSH - Pure class, lush arrangements and orchestration and a truly amazing vocal."Vitamin C" Can / Grey  AreaSH - The drums and bass especially, the swing of it all really appeals to me coz its all just that little bit off cen...

Bill Curtis of The Fatback Band

Wednesday, 04 July 2007 Back to Mine
What would  I play for someone  who visits my house?You know I would play Fatback tunes that I thought should have been a hit or at least played on the air. If the person is musician. These are the albums I would play:01. Charlie Parker "Live at Townhall"  Bird at his best with Dizzy. Go home and study this.02. Cliff Brown "Joy Spring"To hear what a tight group is supposed to sound like03. Lee Morgan "Sidewinder"to learn how to be funky, the real funk.04. Charles Williams "Trees and Grass and Th...

01. Mandrill - Ape is HighThat is some funky shit right there.02. Cymande - Brothers on the SlideOne of the gretest funk riffs of all time. We did a version for the clubs which sadly wasn't as good as this original03. Big Daddy Kane - Warm it Up KaneNow that's what I call hip hop, Vol. 1 Track 1. Unbeatable.04. Incredible Bongo Band - SatisfactionQuirky take on the Stones classic. You can't be too serious when the clubs over.05. IKON - The DoveA modern chill classic. This captured a lot of peopl...

Hashim - Al Naafiysh (The Soul)  [Streetwave] Cameron : This was the original electro record that got me in techno, my neighbour used to breakdance to it out in the yard. Pure simplicity with focus on quality ingredients - bass, synths, drums and a mean robot voice,   "it's tiiiiiiiiiiiiime....."Information Society - Running (Instrumental) [Wide Angle]Cameron : A Tommy Boy Records classic I picked up in Greek Street Records in Soho before it became a pouny restaurant, still in my mind the best b...

01) Just Kissed My Baby - The Meters - Rhino/Wea.Weep. If there is anything wrong with this record can someone point it out to us please? No? Course not. Straight up and down groover with THAT guitar riff. 02) Trouble - Ray Lamontagne - 14th Floor.Why isn't this guy massive? This track is sublime. Everyone should listen to more Ray, go and buy all of his music now.03) Duppy Conqueror - Bob Marley and the Wailers - Island.Less conspicuous than some of his songs, but familiar in it's sound, this o...

Prince - Something In The Water Does Not Compute1999 - I have been listening to this album since the day it came out. Prince screams like a banshee and that synth sound does it for me. There are so many favorite prince songs but today i choose this one.Can - Halleluwah - Tago Mago Gruff rhys turned me on to this song on tour. We were pulling out of boston bumping this super loud stoned out of our minds after kicking a few porn stars off the tour bus. Sounds so rock and roll right? it was a good ...

01. Candi Staton - I'm Just A Prisoner (Fame Records)This is my kind of soul. Southern, bluesy and brilliantly sung by the great Ms Staton who is having a bit of a career resurgence at the moment.02. Smokey Robinson - Quiet Storm (Motown)A record that I consistently return to. Smokey just kills it on vocals. A land mark album that started a genre no less. 03. Sun Ra - Sleeping Beauty (Saturn)One of the legendary Sun Ra's more accessible productions. You just lie back and let it wash over you. St...
