10 Record Challenge! (Pt. 1)

Got challenged to post 10 records that have influenced my musical taste - one record a day for 10 days. No explanation, no review, just the cover. Well... Can't let it go without explanation, so I'll just try to keep it brief.

We'll start out with an acknowledged master. This is a record that I have been trying to figure out how to recreate in some way or another for most of my life. Tunes, performance & production are all solid.



2 of 10: Teen me listened daily for a month before I “got it.” It’s a challenge & I can’t promise you’d like it—but for some it‘s beautiful. Opened my mind. #InfluentialAlbums #FreeJazz #JohnColtrane



3/10: Best writer from NWA w/#BombSquad + #LenchMob. Extremely visceral music for VERY select audience. Crazy artwork, too. #LAhiphop #GFunk classic #InfluentialAlbums #IceCube



4/10: Heard this in Wherehouse #BaldwinHills & thought "WTF is THAT?!" Obvious talent + use of all available tech for bleeding-edge #Soul. 93/94 B4 #DAngelo #ErykahBadu #LaurynHill or #Maxwell! 2 many don't know it, maybe it's #BlackFamous? #InfluentialAlbums #MeshellNdegeOcello




5/10: Lil' sis gets her due, #MinneapolisSound no longer just #Prince. #JimmyJam #TerryLewis now household names. MJ gets rocked (listen 2 "Bad") Evry1 forgets this is her 3rd album. Wicked #GrammyPerformance: ow.ly/jVxt50zv9Vr #InfluentialAlbums #JanetJackson
