sunday classic – 170208

Welcome to Sunday Morning:

The Sunday Times listasi pari viikkoa sitten eniten populaarimusiikkiin vaikuttaneet albumit kautta aikain:

1 The Velvet Underground, The Velvet Underground & Nico Hardly anybody bought it, as the saying goes, but everyone who did formed a band.

2 Beatles, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Created the idea of using the recording studio as an instrument.

3 David Bowie, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars The arrival of postmodernism in rock’s most glamorous self-fulfilling prophecy.

4 Patti Smith, Horses Pioneered vast new territories for women in popular music.

5 Beach Boys, Pet Sounds The instrumentation, the harmonies, the arrangements, the sheer ambition.

6 Beatles, Revolver Goodbye “pop group”, hello “rock band”.

7 The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Are You Experienced? Shaped our sonic world – the template for guitar heroes everywhere.

8 Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited How does it feel? Like a whole new world just opened up.

9 Public Enemy, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back Hip-hop comes of age.

10 Sex Pistols, Never Mind the Bollocks… Rendered the rock dinosaurs extinct (for a while).

11 Kraftwerk, Trans-Europe Express It sounded like the future then; eerily, it still does now.

12 Michael Jackson, Thriller The last quarter of a century of R&B starts here.

13 Nirvana, Nevermind Rendered the rock dinosaurs extinct (again).

14 NWA, Straight Outta Compton Created the template for gangsta rap.

15 Aretha Franklin, I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You A soul masterpiece, and an album whose anthems radiated out into the wider culture.

16 Ramones, Ramones Rock’s ultimate palate-cleanser. Generations of punks started here.

17 Marvin Gaye, What’s Going On Motown finds its social conscience.

18 The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Gilded Palace of Sin It was largely ignored at the time, but where would alt-country be without it?

19 Bob Marley and the Wailers, Live! Reggae goes global.

20 Joni Mitchell, Blue Searching for sensitive singer-songwriters? Here’s the source.

Sunday Morning on Lou Reedin ja John Calen kirjoittama Velvet Undergroundin ensi albumin avausraita vuodelta 1967.

Onhan se. Loistokamaa.

Olen myös jonkin aikaa seurannut Top100 – Parhaimmat levyt kautta aikain? -blogia, jossa herrat A, O ja D kuuntelevat ja arvioivat Rolling Stone -lehden Top100 albumilistaa kautta aikain. Aivan hauskaa luettavaa.

  1. Siinäpä on nuoria poikia, 41 vuotta sitten!
    Lista on sen sijaan täynnä aarteita, joista osa on omassakin hyllyssä. Ei vaan ole enää soitinta vinyyleille, eikä kaikkia ole tullut hankittua cd:llä.

  2. Katriina,
    On tuo kyllä varsin huikea lista! Jopa siinä määrin, että voisi kuvitella hankkivansa sen kokonaisuudessaan cd:nä tai jossain muissa muodoissa. Tosin kaikkia ei taida saada… 😦 Levysoitin olisi vielä, mutta aika vähällä käytöllä tuo on ollut viime vuosina.
