                      A Tribe Called Quest

                      Midnight Marauders - Vinyl Reissue

                      The third and last of the 'classic' Tribe records (preceding the addition of Jay Dee and the formation of the Ummah production team), "Midnight Marauders" sees the group at their most musically sophisticated, marrying the distinctive Tribe sound with groundbreaking sampling and adventurous rhymes. The logical evolution of the bop-influenced hooks which characterized "Low End Theory", "...Marauders" seemlessly balances jazz, soul and reggae influences with pure golden age hip hop, graduating from a cool school aesthetic to an electric jazz sound (reminiscent of fusion-era Miles Davis). Lyrically "Midnight Marauders" finds the group's abstract poetics in excellent form as usual, and Phife is miles ahead of the 'mayor-flavor' rhymes of "Can I Kick It." As per the title, the album develops the introspection of "After Hours" into a nocturnal feel which winds its way through "Midnight," the party-rock of "We Can Get Down," "Clap Your Hands" and the complex layers of "God Lives Through." No review of this LP would be complete without a moment in tribute to the majesty of the Ronnie Foster sampling "Electric Relaxation", a flawless cut which sees Q-Tip and Phife Dawg trading killer bars with effortless flow. All in all, a true classic from back in the day, which no home should be without.

The songs are still absolutely 18 carat, and none less than Norman's puzzlingly under the radar, scarf-waving classic "Winter".

It's still amazing, and timeless today!

Released in 1995 and spurred on by label mates Oasis ( doing something pretty similar, to be honest) igniting the scene, this record has classic song after classic song and still rings true to this day.

                                            Stranger Things : Music From The Netflix Series

                                              After furnishing us with three volumes of excellent mood-setting synth-dread from S U R V I V E's Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein, the time has come for the real retroist deal, a double LP of the perfectly selected and precisely arranged period jams from the magnificent Stranger Things. A cursory scan of the tracklist reveals hits from The Police, The Clash and The Bangles, alternative anthems from Echo & The Bunnymen, Fad Gadget and Joy Division and pop smashes from Cyndi Lauper, Duran Duran and Corey Heart. Stitched together with choice bits of dialogue from the show, this mixtape is an immersive trip into glorious nostalgia.

                                                Legend of the Wu-Tang is a compilation album by the Wu-Tang Clan, released in 2004. It is notable for including the rare unedited version of "Protect Ya Neck", a remix of the song "Method Man" with alternate verses, as well as "Shaolin Worldwide", "Sucker M.C.'s" (a Run D.M.C. cover) and "Diesel", three tracks the Wu-Tang produced for soundtracks and compilations. The inside booklet can be unfolded to form a mini-poster of the group. Of course, it features Wu-Tang staples like "Shame On A Nigga", "It's Yourz", "Proect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)" and "Sucker M.C's". Wu-Tang's legacy continues to live on, often cited as one of the most influential hip-hop acts of all time. Pressed and presented beautifully, this is a wonderful chance to own clean copies of Wu-Tang's best joints, but also makes a perfect introduction to the newcomers who may be overwhelmed by their excessive catalogue.

                                                Youth & Young Manhood

                                                  Kings of Leon burst onto the music scene in 2003 and were (bizarrely, from this vantage point) lazily compared to TheStrokes. Something to do with youthful exhuberance, perhaps, but the similarities end there. Here was a preacher raised band of (literal!) brothers, hell bent on bringing Southern, good-time rock'n'roll back onto the radio and into our hearts. They had the bar-band groove, a cool as you like attitude, but most importantly some massive pop songs to help them stake their claim. It was thrilling debut.

The album held the top spot in the US charts for 15 weeks - the longest time of any female vocalist. Includes the original and best version of "(You Make Me Feel) Like A Natural Woman', later a massive hit for Aretha Franklin, plus "It's Too Late" and "I Feel The Earth Move".

                                                            Primal Scream had been fragile, 60s obsessed  dreamers, influenced by Love and (particularly) The Byrds (85-87) but in 1989 they were NY Dolls leather-clad rockers with the odd Big Star slowie or Stonesy ballad thrown in for good measure. Then BANG acid house and ecstasy hit  and in the spirit of the day, Andy Weatherall took one of those Stones style heartbreakers and made the hit single "Loaded" . Indie-Dance was born, anyone remember?!But this LP is much, much bigger than that. It goes up, it comes down, and covers all the magic in between. There's blues, soul, gospel, house, dub and yes a beautiful Stonesy ballad ("Damaged"). No songs are fillers, it's a perfectly realised musical statement. With the Orb, Andy Weatherall and even the Stones'Jimmy Miller to help them, they created one of the best albums of the 90s that still resonates today. Higher than the sun.

                                                                The third album from The Manics isn’t the easiest of listens. It’s a tense and at times harrowing collection of songs, recorded shortly before Richey James hospitalisation for depression, and subsequent disappearance. The lyrics, whether personal or political, are graphic and unflinchingly bleak. And even their usually buoyant glam hooks are tighter and more intense. It’s a powerful statement and still remains one of The Manics’ finest moments.

                                                                Jimi Hendrix

                                                                "Axis: Bold As Love" was the follow-up to "Are You Experienced?", and represented a much more conscious use of the recording studio's possibilities. Where his live shows continued to showcase the raw rocking power of the Experience, the recording studio gave Hendrix the composer/arranger a broader palette. There are still plenty of powerful blues/rock-inflected songs, such as the menacing "If 6 Was 9", the rolling "Spanish Castle Magic" and the spatial title tune. But "Up From The Skies" is a jazzy trio romp, featuring Hendrix's bluesy, vocalised wah-wah pedal. And on the ballads "Little Wing"and "Castles Made Of Sand", Hendrix shifts the focus from the band to the silvery chord/melody accompaniments he often employed to complement his vocals. They are an orchestral effect unto themselves.

The artist's raucous rapport with his captive audience is obvious on an inspired mix of Cash classics ("I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues"), jailhouse ballads ("Starkville City Jail," "San Quentin"), traditional tunes ("Wreck of the Old 97," "There'll Be Peace in the Valley") and well-chosen covers (Bob Dylan's "Wanted Man," the Lovin' Spoonful's "Darling Companion"). The album's most popular track, though, remains the Shel Silverstein-penned novelty number "A Boy Named Sue," which became the biggest hit single of Cash's career.

This isn't a 'sell out' slbum though, she still stick to her defiant, poetic lyrics but here she  manages to create a balance between her art and commercial success.

The self-titled album combines metal riffs with hip-hop which has been employed by plenty of bands with varying degrees of success. What really set RATM apart though was the political conviction and sheer intensity and venom of frontman Zach De La Rocha's vocal delivery.

"Electric Ladyland" was revolutionary in its scope and execution. Using New York City's Record Plant as a gateway to free expression, Hendrix traversed an abstract landscape containing compositions as weird and wonderful as "...And The Gods Made Love" and "1983...(A Merman I Should Turn To Be)".  Simultaneously looking forwards and backwards, Hendrix mixed in a song reminiscent of his time on the chitlin' circuit (Earl King's "Come On [Part 1]"), a Bob Dylan favourite ("All Along The Watchtower"), and one of his snappiest singles ("CrosstownTraffic"). Although Hendrix produced and wrote most of this masterpiece, others weighed in with their own contributions. Noel Redding penned "Little Miss Strange", and other guests such as Al Kooper and Buddy Miles showed up to play. Traffic's Steve Winwood and Jack Casady of Jefferson Airplane also made cameos, appearing on this classic album's spiritual centre, "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)".

"Are You Experienced?" is probably the most rock-oriented of Hendrix's official studio releases, but its influences are incredibly diverse. "Third Stone From The Sun" recalls the supple octaves of jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery; the churning Afro-Cuban polyrhythms of "Manic Depression" evoke John Coltrane and Elvin Jones; "I Don't Live Today" employs ritualistic Native American drum beats; and the title tune borrows the Eastern airs of sitarist Ravi Shankar.

                                                                          Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding blast away with a barely controlled fury, and there's a distorted metallic edge to Hendrix's guitar timbre that has made "Are You Experienced?" a particular favourite among rock and heavy-metal guitarists. "Purple Haze" and "Foxy Lady" helped define the power-trio format, thanks to Hendrix's full-bodied rhythm guitar and his soaring solos. "Are You Experienced?" also established Hendrix as a singer-songwriter. His Dylanesque vocals and spacey imagery make each tune a little gem, especially on gentle outings such as the ballad "The Wind Cries Mary".

But just in case you don’t know, this is arguably one of the best debut albums of all time, from one of the most influential bands of their generation! And if that’s not enough to tempt you, then I don’t know what is.

The quality of these songs is actually hard to comprehend; absolute classics, every single one! Uprooting the established guitar pop format in favour of a loose-limbed groove the baggy icons somehow incorporated Byrdsian jangle, hippie-inclusivity, funk swagger and searing solos into a new type of rock music, single-handedly soundtracking the second Summer of Love and defining a moment in time. It ignited and united a whole generation and will be passed on forever. Beautiful.

                                                                              With Graceland, Paul Simon hit on the idea of combining his always perceptive songwriting with the little-heard mbaqanga music of South Africa, creating a fascinating hybrid that re-enchanted his old audience and earned him a new one. It is true that the South African angle (including its controversial aspect during the apartheid days) was a powerful marketing tool and that the catchy music succeeded in presenting listeners with that magical combination: something they'd never heard before that nevertheless sounded familiar. As eclectic as any record Simon had made, it also delved into zydeco and conjunto-flavored rock & roll while marking a surprising new lyrical approach (presaged on some songs on Hearts and Bones); for the most part, Simon abandoned a linear, narrative approach to his words, instead drawing highly poetic, abstract, and satiric portraits of modern life, often charged by striking images and turns of phrase torn from the headlines or overheard in contemporary speech. An enormously successful record, Graceland became the standard against which subsequent musical experiments by major artists were measured and continues to provide rewards to its listeners and remains a pivotal listening experience for writers, artists and fans.

                                                                              The compilation album features a mixture of rare and unavailable and previously unreleased tracks. My Bloody Valentine remain one of the most unique and thrilling bands of the last 25 years. Sonic pioneers, they stood alone in the late 80s/early 90s, their two albums sounded like nothing that had gone before.

                                                                              My Bloody Valentine

It was culled from endless, deliberately disorientating late night sessions, it's author Kevin Shields using sleep deprivation as a tool for inspiration. It drove the record company, Creation into despair, and nearly bankrupted them at the same time. It caused the band itself to implode and they never recorded another note again. And that was 12 years ago. It was a massive favourite of critics and fans (and Piccadilly Records!) and spawned a whole slew of imitators. Then: silence. So you can add 'mystery', 'myth' and 'legend' to that classic rock list! But what does it sound like? Swathes of noise wash over you, smother you, (get the headphones on! Come on!) whilst pretty melodies constantly bubble to the surface. Way down low, murky dance beats (for this was 1990/91) pull, whilst up in the heavens Belinda (Kevin's girlfriend and the perfect singer for his songs) coos like an ethereal, blissed out siren, just out of reach. The songs are top drawer but it's the sound that will pull you under. Like a jet plane taking off, but with Bacharach and David beckoning you through the din, it's the perfect marriage of noise and melody. A true, one-off, masterpiece. PERFECTION!!!

Melodic but angular where its successor is otherworldly and dreamlike, "Isn't Anything" is nonetheless an indie classic containing such brilliant tracks as "Soft As Snow (But Warm Inside)" and "Feed Me With Your Kiss".

Hendrix had become self-conscious about his image as a showman and rocker, and about the limitations of thrashing through the same repertoire night after night. "Band Of Gypsys" was an attempt by Hendrix to redefine himself, and in a way heralded his return to the ethos of the blues and R&B, a return assisted by a powerhouse, groove-oriented rhythm section.
                                                                              During their brief tenure as a band, Band Of Gypsys performed New Year's Eve at the Fillmore East, and this live recording captures some of Hendrix's most monumental solos, particularly his long, intensely emotional improvisation on "Machine Gun" (including the screeches of bombs and gunfire) and his pithy blues work on "Who Knows". Buddy Miles's "Changes" illustrates Hendrix's mastery of funk, while "Message To Love" and "Power To Love" demonstrate his remarkable ability to provide a simultaneous rhythm accompaniment and melodic counterpoint to his vocals, in the blues tradition of Robert Johnson. "Band Of Gypsys" was markedly different from Hendrix's work with Experience, but rivals it in terms of scope, vision, and beauty.

A hypnotic, narcotic, psychedelic gospel album full of confessional songs about heartbreak and drug abuse. This record is a flat out masterpiece that received a 10.0 rating from Pitchfork.

There is an obvious influence from more avant acts such as Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Sigur Ros on show here, and indeed the production duties are taken up by Sigur Ros' Ken Thomas. Having survived and moved on from the tragic suicide of their guitarist Jimmi Lawrence which would have seen the break up of lesser bands, this is an epic fully formed triumph!!!
