Battle of 1970: "Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow" vs "Funhouse"

If you like those Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane albums, I'm sure you'd appreciate it too. (Phaorah doesn't play on it like he did on Thomas's previous album, but it's still very much in the same mood, and obviously "Pharoah's Tune" was co-written by him.)

Tuomas, Thursday, 7 February 2019 12:59 (two months ago) Permalink

I might go with the first on the list. I listen to Ptah all of the time, it's effing magical. Some epic contenders, though, for sure.

I mean...pretty much every album on this list that I've heard is worthy of the Best of '70 mantle. That's crazy. Even Clapton was able to put out something non-shit!

Zep is one of my favorite bands and I've occasionally thought that III might be my favorite of their albums but I don't think it even quite creeps into my top 10 for 1970.

After the Gold Rush just over Bitches Brew, loads of great stuff again but maybe not quite as strong a year as '71? Favourite 1970 record not listed here: Parallelograms by Linda Perhacs

Holy shit, no Mwandishi even!

(I understand the limitations of the format, Neechy. I'm just in awe that the number of wholly valid options in this instance far exceeds 50.)

My birth year and I always marvel at the output. As much as I love both the Sabbath records, I gotta go with Cosmos Factory. A lot of these records are the ones I'd play for space aliens to school them on what is Rock.

Allman Brothers - Idlewild South

Early 70s really do seem to be a golden era and I hate cliches of how older eras/music was better but you cant really argue with the actual amount of albums when you see them placed right before your eyes.

Hopefully these polls will help others hear new to them music and I can hear albums recommended in here that I haven't heard.

Oor Neechy, Thursday, 7 February 2019 15:53 (two months ago) Permalink

For the artists who were on the '69 list, these most feel like a step down from their '69 offerings (Stooges being the biggest exception)

eva logorrhea (bendy), Thursday, 7 February 2019 16:01 (two months ago) Permalink

I mean this era predates me and I didn't even discover most of this music until relatively recently so nostalgia doesn't factor in at all when I assert (as I know I have before 'round these parts) that the qualitative average of popular music was never higher than when Nixon occupied the WH.

Agree with the Colonel on the omission of...

Can - Soundtracks
Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band - Lick My Decals Off, Baby

I mean, "Electronic Meditation", amusing little album though it is, is not on the same planet as "Soundtracks".

JFC, I hate to be all "music was better back then" but there are 10-15 albums on this list that are better than anything that came out in 2018. In fact, there are albums that widely made 2018 top ten lists that are worse than every single record on this list.

This was a little easier than the 1969 poll. Loaded is the pop art art pop peak, even without the outcat ventures of other VU LPs (just as satisfying in its way).

Friedrich B. Neechy (Oor Neechy), Friday, 8 February 2019 15:35 (two months ago) Permalink

Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath,
Black Sabbath - Paranoid

If you're gonna invent heavy metal, may as well put out a second album the same year to show everyone you mean business.

Funkadelic - Free Your Mind... and Your Ass Will Follow
Funkadelic - Funkadelic
Parliament - Osmium

Meanwhile, George Clinton says "Two albums? Weak sauce, Tony..."

And then there's these:

Kraftwerk - Kraftwerk
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III
MC5 - Back In The Usa
Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
Neil Young - After the Gold Rush
Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother
Syd Barrett - The Madcap Laughs
The Stooges - Fun House
The Velvet Underground - Loaded

This is a tough choice. I am going to go with Paranoid for the simple reason I likely played it more than any of the other albums.

Out of the list, I would probably go for Third, Yeti, Curtis or even Bryter Layter (which has shot up in my esteem).
Some of my own favorites are probably Força Bruta, Is it Because I'm Black and Moondance. Also Ladies of the Canyon.
And three other Brazilian records: Cantiga de longe (Lôbô), September 17, 1969 (A. Gilberto), Orfeo novo (Gismonti).

after the goldrush. such a perfect album. not sure if it is neil's best, on the beach is more to the bone, harvest is more sentimental. but after the goldrush is amazing as it anticipates the hangover after flower power. and i am still intrigued about that movie.

I dunno if that's the source for wrong year tags in jazz albums, but AMG used to date jazz albums by the year they were recorded instead of the release year, so Mwandishi for example was a 1970 album according to them. Why they did that, I have no idea.

Yet a few more unmentionwd notables and personal touchstones (not that I'd necessarily vote for any of these.) 1970 was just that massive.

Alice Cooper - Easy Action
Amboy Dukes - Marriage on the Rocks/Rock Bottom (fuck Ted Nugent, obviously)
Hackamore Brick - One Kiss Leads To Another
High Tide
Last Poets
Joni Mitchell - Ladies Of The Canyon
Rustic Hinge - Replicas
Bob Seger - Mongrel
Woody Shaw - Blackstone Legacy
Alan Shorter - Orgasm
The Stark Reality - Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop

Bicycles on CCR album covers are nice, but only one of these 50 has an actual functioning wheel included. So Zep III gets my vote.
