I’ve read the book and am ready to deliver the result. The album he gives a good kicking to is What’s Goin’ On. At one point, he suggests Rock critics often choose it as a great only because they feel guilty about favouring white acts. Other than that, he seems to like everything he mentions. @Rigid-Digit nominated four albums, The Faces A Nod Is As Good As A Wink, Cat Stevens Teaser, Black Sabbath Masters Of Reality & Rod’s Every Picture. He loves them all. In fact, my impression is that the Rod album is his second favourite of 1971 after Who’s Next. The biggest surprise, to me, is that he rates The Carpenters (the album), scuppering @Didley-Farquar ‘s chances.
In the absence of someone selecting the criminally under-rated What’s Goin’ On, I’m having to go with the ignored. The following nominations, neither act nor album, are mentioned:
@retropath2 – Commander Cody’s Lost in The Ozone @ernietothecentreoftheearth – Shirley Collins & The Albion Country Band’s No Roses @The-Actual-North – Mogul Thrash @Hawkfall – Flower Travelin’ Band @H-P-Saucecraft – Byrdmaniax » Continue Reading.
