#620 Lee Hazlewood – The LHI Years: Singles, Nudes & Backsides (1968-71)

This record was a present from a good friend, the same friend who bought me the Jacco Gardner LP that turned up early on the randometer, and Barbarella. How fortunate I am to have generous friends with such an excellent taste in music. This is a truly wonderful record. I’ve not listened to it for … Continue reading #620 Lee Hazlewood – The LHI Years: Singles, Nudes & Backsides (1968-71)

#1208 The Space Lady – Greatest Hits

This is one of my most recent purchases. The compilation dates from 2013, but I only came across the Space Lady a couple of months ago when listening to a wonderful mix of women pioneers in electronic music by the always fascinating Open Culture.

Prince was my gateway drug into funk and George Clinton’s rhythmic creations in particular. And this is a super cheap compilation CD that I bought … Continue reading #509 Funkadelic – Cosmic Slop

#914 Os Mutantes – Everything Is Possible: The Best of Os Mutantes

I first came across Os Mutantes via David Byrne and this 1999 compilation released on his Luaka Bop label. They are a psychedelic rock band from Brazil, influential in their homeland in the late 60s and at the forefront of the Tropicalia movement, but rarely heard outside of Brazil until Bryne’s patronage helped them reach … Continue reading #914 Os Mutantes – Everything Is Possible: The Best of Os Mutantes
