Can't believe I've never heard these albums before, makes me wonder how much I'm missing out on, but that's where this thread steps in and fills the holes.

Both of those songs where terrific, and the video just made them that much better at explaining what the song is really about. You where spot on about their music and their lyrics, it's delivered in such a catchy song, but the overall meaning is eye somewhat disturbing, but no matter, I will be checking out the rest of the album. Thanks, and hope you continue the list.
Thanks man! I really appreciate the positive feedback.

Not much on the list I'd consider listening too so far, but I'm just an old fart.

Thanks for sharing. I'll try to include some Lawrence Welk for you.

Lodger - Hi-Fi High Lights Down Low!

Yessss. This is my favorite to listen to when i'm in a cynical, testy mood. I am so happy to see this on there! Have you heard the remastered album that came out in 2005? Does anyone have this (the 2004 release) downloaded that would be willing to share ?

I'm actually not sure whether I have the original release or the re-release. It's nice to hear from someone else who likes Lodger though, I've never met one before!

This thread is excellent. Definitely one of my favorites currently going on. Um... I've had a lot of trouble finding the Boris Kovac album. Is there any chance you can send me a link?

15. Taj Mahal—World Music

I'd imagine, if I really did know the world was going to end in the immediate future, what I'd want to do the most is spend as much time as humanly possibly with the people closest to me. My wife, my family, my friends, I'd want to tell all of them how much they had meant to me in this life. I think the end of world would leave most of us craving the warmth of human connection, and fortunately for the world, Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, better known as Taj Mahal, is an absolute genius at giving that warmth a musical form.

Even though World Music is not an actual album—it's a compilation of songs culled from several of Taj's 1970s releases—it somehow manages to hang together as one amazingly well. The fact that's bookended by the beautiful instrumental track "When I Feel the Sea Beneath My Soul" probably does a lot to hold it together, but more importantly it's the consistent warmth that shines through every track here, even one as angry as his cover of Bob Marley's "Slave Driver", that makes for a unified listening experience. It's really pretty amazing how unified it is, to tell the truth, as the influences present range from the Cajun to the African to the Caribbean to a surprising Chuck Berry cover.

There's one particular song I'd like to point out here too: "Clara (St. Kitts Woman)", which is essentially a love song to his deceased grandmother. I have to confess this is one of those handful of songs that chokes me up literally every single time I hear it. It always makes me think of my own grandmother who, though not from St. Kitts and not named Clara, was one the kindest, most wonderful people I have ever known. And I can tell when I listen to this song that Taj can relate to that.
