4th March

Marvin Gaye – Come get to this

Taken from the sublime, and somewhat misunderstood Let’s get it on which followed on from the equally impressive What’s going on? I can’t imagine there have been many better back to back offerings that that. This particular track is one of his lesser known gems.


P.S. Further to this post I put my mind to thinking about back to back albums that I love. Feel free to disagree/add your own:

Van Morrison – Astral Weeks and Moondance (Naturally)

Neil Young – After the Gold Rush and Harvest

Bruce Springsteen – Born to run and Darkness on the edge of town

The Beatles – Abbey Road and Let it be

Prince – Around the world in a day and Sign of the times

Some more modern releases:

Michael Jackson – Thriller and Bad

Oasis – Definitely maybe and (What’s the story) Morning glory?

De la soul – 3 feet high and rising and De la soul is dead

Bjork – Post and Homogenic

Outkast – Aquemini and Stankonia

3rd March

Outkast – SpottieOttieDopaliscious

This is taken from Aquimini, Outkast’s 3rd album. It’s a good one, my favourite of their albums. People seem to forget they made music before Ms.Jackson and long before Hey Ya. It’s a pity because a lot of it is really great.

I LOVE the horns on this track, they are so languid and perfectly complement the vocals.
