Kevin Ayers / Joy of a Toy I also really loved listening to his criminally overlooked album Yes We Have No Mañanas (So Get Your Mañanas Today)
Leonard Cohen / Live Songs Such a huge loss. This song slays me.
Johnnie Frierson / HAVE YOU BEEN GOOD TO YOURSELF Johnnie was the brother of legendary R&B singer Wendy Rene. This album compiles cassette demos he made following his time in Vietnam and the loss of his son. Incredibly direct, raw and uplifting music.
Ebo Taylor / My Love and Music Just came across this one on a trip to LA. Solid Ghanaian highlife funk.
Alice Coltrane / Huntington Ashram Monastery A perfect record to start the day.
Joanna Brouk / Hearing Music Beautiful compilation of ambient, minimal and early electronic compositions from the 70’s and 80’s by this Bay area composer and artist.
Craig Leon / Nommos and Visiting Two excellent records originally released on John Fahey’s Takoma label. Tribal music vis a vis drum machines and synths.
Sir Douglas Quintet / The Best of Doug Sahm and the Sir Douglas Quintet Tex-Mex garage rock from the 60’s and 70’s.
Robert Stillman / Rainbow Pastoral jazz by this talented multi instrumentalist.
