Various Artists - The Love You Save (American Soul Music 1955 - 1972) (KR-01, Cairo, 2018)
I’m not sure there is an over-arching theme to this comp, on the newly christened Mississippi Records offshoot, any more specific than ‘killer deep soul cuts’ but from those I’m more familiar with - Aaron Neville, Irma Thomas, James Carr etc - to those that are new to me - Thornton Sisters, The Queenettes - there isn’t a misstep.
Midnight Oil - Diesel and Dust ~ CBS Records - 1987 ~ European pressing w/ gatefold sleeve
I was in primary school when this came out, and while it was the melodies that pulled me in, it was also one of the first contacts I had with such unabashed political commentary presented in the form of music. I had never been to Australia, nor did I really know that much about their history, but Midnight Oil painted a picture for me that I could somewhat understand, even at such a young age. The parallels between the struggles faced by Australian Aboriginal peoples and their native counterparts in North America were clear, even for a kid like me who had lived a rather quiet and sheltered childhood.
From the musical side, this is another fine example of Australians punching above their weight in terms of quality music. It is often cited as one of the best rock records of the 1980s, and I think that's pretty accurate. While there are certainly other albums that continue to get more airplay, Diesel and Dust makes statements that continue to mean something far more than most of the lyrical content seen in 80s rock. When I lived in Australia for a year (2010), lead singer Peter Garrett had become an elected official, taking his political drive to another level- even if an argument could be made that his work in Midnight Oil allowed him to reach a wider audience.
Break this baby out for a Sunday spin and break your Peter Garrett funky vampire dance moves out of closet... you're gonna need them.

벌써 4개월이 지났다. 내가 edm 없이는 절대 못 살 만큼 edm이라는 장르와 사랑에 빠질 수 있게 된 계기를 준 아티스트 @avicii 🙏🏻 edm이라는 장르의 음악이 단순히 클럽 음악이 아니라 그 이상의 품격을 지닌 음악이란 걸 많은 사람들에게 깨닫게 해준 예술가이다. 나는 그가 떠난 후로 단 하루도 그리워하지 않은 적이 없고 다시 천국에서 만날 그날을 매일같이 기다리고 있다. He is always in my heart with his musics. #AviciiForever ◢ ◤
