uhm... These are albums that I've listened to a lot over time or heard recently and know I'm going to like for a very long time. Off the cuff and in no particular order...
There'd have to be something by The Church
, either Of Skins & Heart
or Hologram of Baal
. Great jangly psychedelic sound and one of my favourite bands ever.
Remain in Light
by Talking Heads
A pop album by Eno, probably Another Green World
which is the more "bang for your buck" one, though I like "Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy" heaps too. Well, most of it.
An ambient album by Eno, either Music For Airports
or Thursday Afternoon "Thursday"
is kind of like Eno being Eno, so maybe that's not as good.
Parte de la Religion
by Charly Garcia. Don't know why, it's just not that good. And yet... Either that or any Sumo
Anything with Louis Armstrong's Hot Five
recordings. Maybe even Louis and the Good Book
. Majorly cheesy but there's some good stuff.
Something by R. Crumb and His Cheap Suit Serenaders
But not "Singing In The Bathtub"
Penthouse & Pavement
by Heaven 17. Didn't like anything else they did much. For that synth stuff I could even go for Travelogue
by the Human League or Replicas
by the Tubeway Army (but it's a poor second)
Something by Ed Kuepper. Some compilation like The Butterfly Net
or This is the Miracle Mile
From Her To Eternity
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. They still sound like the Birthday Party but the sound breathes better.
Le Quattro Stagioni
Any good compilation by Eduardo Falú. Great, great Argentine guitarist.
Buenas Noches, Compatriotas
by Atahualpa Yupanqui. As above. The things he did on that live album like the malambo piece "Cruz Del Sur" and whatever the Gato Cordobes was called, at his very late age were incredible.
6 & 12 String Guitar
by Leo Kottke.
by Phillip Glass
Salt Marie Celeste
by Nurse With Wound This is an amazing album, it's just two huge massive chords, but so heavily (and delicately) layered so that it never gets boring. It realy does give the sensation of being on a sinking ship on the way to nowhere. Oh, and speaking of sinking ships, maybe I could go for "Mighty Joe Moon"
by Grant Lee Buffalo.
Exile On Main Street
or something with Mick Taylor and the Stones. Possibly "Beggar's Banquet" or even "Their Satanic Majesties Request" if I couldn't get Mick Taylor. The Stones died for me when he left.
The Last Waltz
soundtrack album. There's so much in there.
Rum, Sodomy and the Lash
by The Pogues. You can have "Fairy Tale of New York" I never got that song at all.
Canta En Español
by Edye Gorme and Trio Los Panchos.
or Before Hollywood
by The Go Betweens. Probably... no, I wouldn't, know which one to pick.
And yeah, Abraxas
. Or Y Los Cubanos Postizos
. Nah... Abraxas
