Black Market Clash

Black Market Clash (BMC for short) was originally released as a 10″ record to the North American market (US and Canada) back in 1980. The 9-track 10″ contained rare and b-side tracks previously unavailable in this market, hence the necessity for release here. 76 woorden meer

The Clash: Ranking the Albums One By One

Alright, folks, you saw me do this with The Beatles, now for a much shorter list with another favorite of mine: The Clash. I mean, you know The Clash, you know that they’re one of the most influential punk groups in history and that they fortunately take a much more political stance than, say, Ramones did, and you know that they’ve inspired essentially every punk band afterwards including modern-day punk heroes Green Day. 1.791 woorden meer

Booker T. and the M.G.'s - Time Is Tight (1969)

Quite simply one of the best records ever made. The tension builds so slowly, the restraint is compelling, the command is complete!

I actually first heard this song as a cover version by The Clash on the superlative 10″ LP “Black Market Clash”,  almost 40 years ago (gulp!). 69 woorden meer

80’s stuff

Added a few great 80’s records to the collection. Especially love that Public Enemy LP, so influential and so many people sampled from that record.

In the rearview: course reflection

The class was fairly interesting and I was given free reign to delve into and merge concepts I have been reading about outside of classes, it is hard to believe that it is not standard practice. 435 woorden meer
