DANNY BAKERS GREAT ALBUM SHOWDOWN

61 posts in this topic

So, if you were on the programme, which three rock albums would you put on the wall of fame? No sneering, no judgement, no one-upmanship, just three which always satisfy, whenever you revisit them. Here's mine:

  • Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Damn the Torpedoes
  • David Bowie - Hunky Dory
  • The Band - The Last Waltz

Only three, though - that's even tougher than 'Desert Island Discs'!

Never actually heard of two of yours :mellow:

  • Earth vs Wildhearts - The Wildhearts ('93)
  • Between the Heart and the Synapse - The Receiving end of Sirens (05)
  • Celebration Rock - Japandroids ('12)

And I've not heard of all 3 of them!

Grace Dent, Boy George and David Hepworth for tonight's panel. Not as familiar with Dent as some, but the other two are opinionated, knowledgable and usually entertaining.

As for Clarkson, he wasn't performing his professional 'Top Gear' berk character, and his honest enjoyment of music shone through.

Grace Dent is a goddess

Okay, time's up on the Rock albums. Now you have to nominate your three Pop albums. Of course, the difference between the two can be blurry.

Joni Mitchell - Court and Spark

Paul Simon - Graceland

Blondie - Parallel Lines

Muddy Waters - Hard Again

Can't think of a third one to match these two

Soul/R'n'B selection time! I've deliberately omitted 'What's going on' and Stevie Wonder's remarkable run of Seventies albums, just to be fair to the rest of the genre.

  • Lamont Dozier - The ABC Years & Lost Sessions
  • Nona Hendryx & Billy Vera - You have to cry sometime
  • Curtis Mayfield - There's no Place like America today

Womack & Womack - Radio MUSC Man

Anita Baker - Giving You the Best I've Got

Mary J Blige - No More Drama

I have tons and tons of soul and r'n'b stuff but it's almost all on Greatest Hits collections.

On another forum, someone has nominated Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis. I may have to make a strategic edit to my post above...

A few hours later, I am now considering the following instead:

  • Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis
  • Randy Crawford - Raw Silk
  • Minnie Riperton - Come to my Garden

But that's all-female, so maybe:

  • Howard Tate - Get it while you can
  • Sam & Dave - Hold on, Im Comin'
  • Sam Cooke - One Night Stand (Live At The Harlem Square Club, 1963)

I came to appreciate Soul music later in life than most, but this is still an utter barsteward to choose, even reckoning without Stevie'n'Marvie.
