Stormcock
3.  Stormcock by Roy Harper

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Diam
4.  Diam by Daby Touré
The list author says:

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

The First Of A Million Kisses

Clouds
7.  Clouds by Joni Mitchell
The list author says:
  "Arguably Joni's finest offering. There are people who write song lyrics and there are poets. Joni Mitchell is both - and a tune-writer to boot. Here she explores more subjects than I've space to list."
£3.99   Used & New from: £1.08
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

Baaya
8.  Baaya by Baaba Maal

American Beauty
9.  American Beauty by Grateful Dead
The list author says:

£5.99   Used & New from: £3.18
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson
10.  Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson by Ben Webster
The list author says:
  "If there were a way to talk without words, then Ben Webster's sexophone would be it. And here he's more than ably accompanied by Oscar Peterson. The ultimate late-night, sexy, smoky-nightclub Swing."
£9.12   Used & New from: £1.90
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Songs Of Leonard Cohen
11.  Songs Of Leonard Cohen by Leonard Cohen
The list author says:
  "These are some of the most profound songs of modern times. University courses exist to explore the meanings in Leonard Cohen's poetry, so all I can do here is to add my vote."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Papa Wemba
12.  Papa Wemba by Papa Wemba

£8.52   Used & New from: £8.50
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Solid Air
13.  Solid Air by John Martyn
The list author says:
  "Lying somewhere between Jazz, Folk and Blues this is probably JM's best work. The title song is a tribute to his friend Nick Drake and is a masterpiece. The rest of the album doesn't let up in quality"
£4.41   Used & New from: £0.85

Kind Of Blue
14.  Kind Of Blue by Miles Davis

After The Gold Rush
15.  After The Gold Rush by Neil Young
The list author says:
  "Yet another Canadian singer-songwriter - it must be the cold winters and wide-open spaces. This is Neil Young at his brilliant best - compassionate protest-folk-rock with the endearing whiny voice."
£4.15   Used & New from: £0.73

Automatic for the People
16.  Automatic for the People by R.E.M.

Best Of
19.  Best Of by Marta Sebestyen
The list author says:
  "The most accessible songs from across Márta Sebestyén's career. The sound of her exotic, slightly-Eastern voice and traditional, acoustic folk instrumentation gets better and better with each hearing."
£12.24   Used & New from: £4.98
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Imagine
20.  Imagine by John Lennon
The list author says:

£13.70   Used & New from: £3.17
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Naturally
22.  Naturally by J.J. Cale
The list author says:
  "If J.J.Cale were any more laid back he'd be horizontal. Rootsie Canjun songs set Cale's easy voice and mournful guitar to a steady beat with occasional fiddle and brass on some songs."
£5.99   Used & New from: £3.00
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

Sound Magic 1
23.  Sound Magic 1 by Afro Celt Sound System
The list author says:
  "An Afro-Celtic-Techno fusion really shouldn't work but here it does to great effect. Atmospheric pipes and solid beats leave you torn between dancing and lying on your back watching clouds."
£12.02   Used & New from: £1.61
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Dollar Brand
24.  Dollar Brand by Abdullah Ibrahim

Soro
25.  Soro by Salif Keita
The list author says:
  "Keïta's first and arguably best album is a fusion between his African roots, Jazz & R&B. Powerful female vocals, drum rhythms and a brass section support this most remarkable vocal talent."
