"Suggest a lesser known work by a well known artist" Sat Apr-11-15 12:44 PM by Lardlad95
Author, Musician, Painter...I don't care about the medium, just put someone on to something that most people don't check for.
Right now...I really wish I could find my copy of Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck.
It isn't a perfectly crafted work, but right now I'm looking at the spring sun stream through the window while I drink rhine wine with strawberries and I can almost see the Paisanos holding court in Monterey, California
6. "Get Up With It - Miles Davis" In response to Reply # 0
The last album of Miles' electric period before he went on hiatus for the rest of the seventies. It's a hodge podge of stuff from different periods from 70-74 and in the process acts like an overview of that era. The opener "He Loved Him madly" is so subtle it could send you to sleep the first time you listen to it, but if you really let it play and you in a certain mood, its like watching a slow sunset, or a lover turn in their sleep. Every slight change has its drama with it.
oh the other hand, "rated X" is raucous and I don't know why no one has sampled it yet. Its a real underated album, mostly because its a messy double album.
