The Bar-Kays – Soul Finger

Some of the most gleefully funky recordings ever made, bar none.

Sadly, the backstory isn’t so gleeful. This was the only album released by the original Bar-Kays line-up, prior to four of the original members being killed in the same plane clash that took Otis Redding away from us—he’d chosen them as his backing band, and they were all en route to a concert in Madison, WI when the plane went down. 77 more words

Neil Young – After The Gold Rush

In the boundaried ecosystem that is my music collection, this one gets filed as “the other Neil Young masterpiece.” Which is the same distinction afforded “Harvest,” making these two releases sort of the Cain and Abel of Young’s Old Testament. 357 more words
