It is definitely one of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century. Hope I'm not overselling it.

Soft Machine- Third (1970)

As far as I am concerned this is like a tonic, I need to hear it every so often to stay healthy and sane(ish). Robert Wyatt will always be my favourite prog 'character'.


The Chrysanthemums - Little Flecks Of Foam Around Barking (1988)

For those who don't know Barking is in East London, where this was recorded by Yukio Yung (aka Terry Burrows, successful author of instructional guitar manuals including Dorling Kindersley's 'K.I.S.S. Guide to Playing Guitar' which I used to have) and Alan Jenkins of new wave/post-punk greats Deep Freeze Mice.
It's a sprawling, knowingly self indulgent, homegrown concept double LP of psychedelic prog-pop and just about everything in between, with tape manipulations added by mail correspondence from unsung genius R. Stevie Moore.

Something like 5 million tracks of R&B girl-group/ rock n' roll/ doo wop/ skiffle-influenced greatness, never gets old, although it doesn't have any Gerry & the Pacemakers, who were mental. Lots of 'la-la-la-la-la-la' harmonising and other such Merseybeat antics. Recommended if you are fond of early Beatles etc.

^ No matter how low Bono is in my estimations or what I think of the Edge's 'innovative' guitar style, I'll always love this album.


^ There's never a bad time to play this one either.


^ Still one of my favourite ever reggae albums and among the first ones I bought too. Great, polished sound = pretty accessible stuff.

^ Just listening to this for the first time in a few years. It's a lot better than I remember it being.
