This forgotten album is arguably one of the five best albums in the Cash discography. It is fueled by superb original Cash songs and well executed covers. It contains "See Ruby Fall" (co-written with Roy Orbison) and one of his best '70s hits, "Blistered." The lean, minimalist instrumentation of the Tennessee Three ensures the album with great rhythm, leaving Johnny Cash's voice as affective as ever.
Singer/multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal is one of the most prominent figures in late 20th century Blues. He took a musicologist's interest in a multitude of Folk and Roots music from around the world and incorporated these styles into his distinguished brand of Country Blues. The Hidden Treasures of Taj Mahal 1969-1973 is a brand new two-disc sonic portrait chronicling the early stirrings of Taj Mahal's solo career.
Son of Schmilsson is the finest work of Harry Nilsson and contains a fantastic set of tracks that illustrate an enormous talented musician who never walks the same musical path twice. The album is so full with song parodies, seemingly straight piano ballads, vulgar hard rock, lovely love songs and a cheerful sing-along that makes the whole a sheer perversity. If you appreciate Nilsson's weird sense of humor in combination with his superb musicality, it is obvious that this album cannot be overlooked!
Eskimo is like a mini trip to cold, windy and mysterious surroundings. When hearing the tribal drumming, chanting and cold splashes of arctic life, it makes you actually believe you're looking over the shoulder of the Inuit people. The Residents were founded in the late sixties, and were able to turn heads with their ability to stay out of any musical confinements. No different for Eskimo, a highly desirable record that is an excellent starting point to discovering the ways of The Residents.
