5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine You've Been Told Your Mother Is Dead But The Rumour Isn't True, 16 Feb 2011
Funkadelic's Maggot Brain is, quite simply, an album where every track features a band on top of their game.

From the drama of the title track to the full on sound-FX laden jam Wars of Armageddon this is a thoroughly enjoyable album.

What I truly love about this album though is that not only is it full of great songs and performances but it sounds like a band having a lot of fun while doing it.

You won't regret purchasing this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Someone Who Sells Truth By The Pound, 16 Jan 2011
Since buying this album I have been obsessed by Judee Sill.

Her vocals and playing are intoxicating and give the songs different perspectives on repeat listens. Her songs show a deftness and beauty that should be to the joy of every listener and the envy of every songwriter that hears them.

Of course, it's hard to talk about Judee Sill without talking about the "what ifs" and "whys" of her career but the difference with Judee Sill, when compared to others that may fall into that category, is that her material more than backs up the legend. In that respect, I put her in the same bracket as Nick Drake as a genuine talent whose artistic tragedy is that their work is often overshadowed by their story and the albums they could've made.

The two albums in this package ("Judee Sill" and "Heart Food") are of a very high standard and we should enjoy the fact that we have these recordings of a great artist rather than focus on what could've been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hiding in Shadows Where We Don't Belong, 16 Jan 2011
This review is from: Do Right Man (Audio CD)
This is a tremendous album by a very talented song writer.

Dan Penn is truly one of the greats of American music and it is showcased here on an album I'd recommend to everyone and anyone.
