“Premiers Symptômes” is a compilation of Air’s early singles from the mid/late-90’s. The die-cut cover is super cool and the songs are eclectic. Back then, they would record into an Akai S1000 sampler, which is a totally weird thing to do. It obviously didn’t hurt, because the album sounds sooo good. #air #france #singles #1999 #vinylcollection #nowspinning #diecut #akais1000
This is one of the best albums I’ve ever listened to. 🍂🍁
Cheers to @matthewpinfield
for sharing his rock & roll journey (so far) and his fantastic memoir. Anyone that has dropped the tone arm down and heard the needle crackle through the grooves can appreciate this story. And Matt, I will always remember what you said. We should all spend more time in life flipping the record over, and finding out what is on the other side. Great job on this and here's to crossing paths and sharing stories next time I am out in L.A.
celebrating the 25th anniversary of this legendary album! The third offering by A Tribe Called Quest, Midnight Marauders was the album that got me interested in hip-hop. Everything about it: the cover, jazz samples, Queens/NYC references, and midnight marauders tour guide bits between songs, make it a definitive ATCQ album. Tune in to KALX tomorrow at noon PST where I’ll be playing some of my favorite tracks!

One of the best and baddest jazz funk albums of all time, Idris Muhammad’s Power Of Soul is just incredible from start to finish. Arranged and conducted by the legendary Bob James who contributes some sweet Fender Rhodes keyboard. Also featuring Grover Washington Jr. who penned the timeless Loran’s Dance, which was famously sampled on Paul’s Boutique. Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder, which guarantees pristine fidelity and clarity. Thanks to @rhino_claremont

El número de serie de mi copia es casi el de las veces que lo he escuchado. 50 años desde su publicación! #thebeatles #nowspinning
Orang-Utan (1971, 2014 Reissue) Having a heavy psych Saturday in the Norwegian woods. When I stumbled over a Spanish reissue of this early psychedelic rock classic, apparently the first and only legitimate reissue ever, I just knew I had to get it. Recorded in 1971 by a group of London-based psych rock veterans as the debut album of their new band Hunter, the tapes were according to legend stolen by their manager and released in the US under the name Orang-Utan. And that was the end of that project. The music on this «lost» classic is nothing short of brilliant, though, with twin guitars, heavy riffs and soulful psychedelic vocals bringing all the right early seventies hard rock vibes. Perfect for a night in front of the fireplace in this neck of the woods 47 years later. #orang
