EYES DOWN FOR TEN HUGELY OVERLOOKED ALBUMS

EACH WENT UNDER THE RADAR BUT CANNOT BE UNDERESTIMATED

 

JIMMY NAIL –  Tadpoles In A Jar (1999):

Pertinent tales of growing older and wiser. Oz shows his mature side.

GRETCHEN PETERS – Hello Cruel World (2012):

The most accomplished lyricist of the past twenty years delivers a peerless collection.

RINGO STARR – Ringo (1973):

Seriously, who honestly thought Ringo could pull off such a triumph?

WARREN ZEVON – Sentimental Hygiene (1987):

REM, Dylan and Young assist the king of song noir with a masterpiece.

GENE CLARK – No Other (1974):

The best solo album made by a Byrd – all hail the Gene genius.

LITTLE FEAT – Sailin’ Shoes (1972):

Country funk to set feet tapping and hearts soaring.

MIKE NESMITH – And The Hits Just Keep On Comin’ (1972):

Former Monkee Nez strips down his back catalogue twenty years before the term unplugged was invented.

LINDISFARNE – Amigos (1989):

Great late in the day offering from the Geordie folksters. Relevant, insightful, absurdly overlooked.

CAITLIN ROSE – Own Side Now (2010):

Spiky tales of femmine angst on a debut album as catchy as flu.

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Return Of The Grevious Angel (1999) – A Tribute to GRAM PARSONS:

Old friends and new devotees pay homage to Gram the man.
