Multiply that by more than 1,200 issues and it's inevitable that a few records we enjoyed maybe slipped out of our listening rotation. We dug into our archives to find 20 once-loved records from our first three years – 1967, 1968 and 1969. Even though they've been largely unheralded these past four decades, they still sound remarkably fresh
It had been a decade since his debut album, and Jackson was facing another new decade. Rather than being weighed down by its narrative, however, Blaze Of Glory finds Jackson firing on all cylinders. Once heard, however, you’re hooked. The album finds Nelson more focused than many of his contemporaries in the 90s, ensuring that his songs aren’t swamped by the overarching themes that bring them together. 35: Semisonic: Feeling Strangely Fine (March 1998) The temptation may be to reduce Semisonic to ‘Closing Time’, the N. 1 US and Top 25 UK hit for which the band are mostly remembered. 36: Marty Stuart: The Pilgrim (June 1999) The concept album has more often than not been a prog rock concern, but with The Pilgrim, Marty Stuart stopped casting around for a hit and instead pieced together an ambitious narrative based on the true story of a love triangle.
The ninth Jackson 5 studio album in five years could easily have been forgettable Motown dross, but the sound of Michael Jackson singing hard-edged dance music with talent way beyond his 15 years made it into an cure party disc, highlighted by the disco robot hit "Dancing Machine. She has a first-class voice and uses it with breathtaking skill, never resorting to stylistic affectation or emotional histrionics. Such artistic intelligence is not all that common among singers. Combining this with the extra richness of her songwriting gift, Valerie Simpson should soon compel a wide audience. Even though Ingram never sustained stardom, he charted R&B singles into the Eighties. He died of heart failure in 2007, age 69.
These ten albums are some fantastic examples of art going to the wayside, being left for dead and forgotten, only to be resurrected at a later date by hungry record sniffers like myself. These albums are obvious choices to me, but I’m including them because every single time I’ve mentioned these bands and albums to other music lovers, they routinely reply that they’ve never heard of them. I envy those of you who have never heard these albums and will take the time to journey down some fascinating moments in musical history.
