The Stranger is imo Joel's best album.

It's funny you should say that, because look at what I found when I move on in my journey through my father's vinyl gifts. Not quite on the level of 52ND STREET, IMO, but definitely a good album!

I got this LP as a Christmas gift from my uncle in 1990, and as such is the only Jarre album I have both on CD and LP. While the "Calypso" tracks are fun, the real takeway is the ambient, exploratory title track of 22 minutes (47 on the CD) -- an approach he didn't really take again until the brilliant AMAZONIA album a couple of years ago.

I'm really glad my dad gave me this iconic LP (he also owns the CLOCKWORK ORANGE soundtrack, but decided to keep it for himself). Moog for the win!

Another curiousity among the vinyls I got from my dad. I have no idea who Lincoln Mayorga is, but these are cover versions of various pop, classical, jazz, performed on piano and arranged by Mayorga. "Recorded live from the studio directly to the master disc"; that sounds like a cool idea, actually.

I remember when my dad got this LP from someone in the early 90s. By that time, I was already an APP fan (I since became a completist), and there was little here I wasn't already familiar with, but I still thought it was cool that my dad now also had an APP record. Played it a couple of times in the early 90s, but haven't played it since then. Until now.

I have a somewhat long Supertramp fan origin story to tell, if anyone is interested (doubtful!), but anyways -- my dad had three Supertramp LPs in his collection, which I have now inherited. This -- their most famous -- is one of them. This is the first time I've ever played Supertramp on vinyl. I'll post the other two as I put them on.

Low on hits, but with some spectacular songs. I think my dad has TWO of this LP, for some reason. One that I got, and one at our summer house in Denmark.

The third and last of my dad's Supertramp LPs, and - as it happens - my alltime favourite album by them.

^ - My favorite Supertramp album is Famous Last Words. Unfortunately, once Hodgson left the band so did their best writer.

Speaking of 1970s rock, I've been exploring some lesser-known stuff. To wit:

Curved Air had some wonderfully weird and beautiful tunes (they should have scored some films), sung by the very distinctive Sonja Kristina:

Now we know where the riff for Kenny Loggins' "Footloose" came from. Joe Walsh:

From a concept funk/disco album.

And something brand new from the world's oldest teenager. Ringo has a new EP! Fun, goofy, good-time music.

I was never that thrilled with Astral Projection being tied to coke-sniffing bodybuilders and the like (I always hated that part of the rave scene), but this 2004 album is a cornerstone in psytrance (along with DANCING GALAXY), which can be enjoyed without all those unfortunate associations.

Great downtempo new age electronica from Peter Gabriel's Real World label.

Synth & prog, melodic & instrumental, this is a gem of a 1978 album from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (famous for their far more inaccessible DOCTOR WHO work).

Funny with all the different images you use, FB. Some with high resolution, some with low, some small, some giant etc. big grin

I can recommend using Discogs. They may not always have the best covers for the most obscure albums, but they're usually good. I use either Spotify or Discogs.
