Zombie by Fela Kuti Good records sound wonderful. The Yes Album by Yes This is the album that deservedly launched the prog-rockers into the foreground. Beethoven: Symphony No.
The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie If you feel like being taken aback by a kid prodigy, then this record is perfect for you. Fetch the Bolt Cutters by Fiona Apple The most amazing thing about this record is its ability to beautifully capture what it means to be alive in the world in Emmaar by Tinariwen West African music is a massive genre worth taking multiple deep dives into.

Long before he became a filmmaker, Canadian Robert Connolly released Plateau , a semi-symphonic concept album that dealt with alien visitations to Earth across the millennia, complete with an eight-page comic book. Cue plenty of Moog and mellotron, burnished with guitar, narrated passages and guest vocals from Sandra Willick.
Despite interest from several local labels, a record deal failed to materialise. I hired a comic book artist to put together a storyboard for a feature film I wanted to produce, an animated movie like Yellow Submarine. The album was my demo to take to Hollywood. I pressed a minimum of 1, copies. I picked up a few heavy metal bands such as Killer Dwarfs, and got Lee Aaron started on her career.
