    I'm still not super familiar with Kate Bush myself, but "Running Up That Hill" is such a fucking amazing song that i can't even fathom that being the trigger to turn a record off.

    You guys are a gold mine. The Whole Story got me hungry, I guess I'll go for Hounds of Love and The Kick Inside next, then everything else. I also just discovered the Yungns guide to extensive discographies. I have alot of work to do, but at least it will be focused, enjoyable and rewarding work. Thanks so much.

    Stiff Little Fingers.

    I downloaded this gigantic torrent which contains John Peel's "Festive Fifty" from each year of the 1980s, and all of their songs which have played so far are fantastic.

    I've only listened to the debut, Inflammable Materials, thoroughly, and I love it. I'd like to hear some more recs past that one, but I would imagine it's a good place to start.

    Otis Redding

    Marvin Gaye

    Al Green

    I'm guessing a compilation would be the best place for me to start with these three? I've only heard a few "hits" from each of them and I'm trying to dig deeper..

    Otis Redding : I'd say Otis Blue or Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

    Marvin Gaye : What's Going On and Let's Get It On

    Al Green : I'm Still in Love With You is one of my absolute favorite records ever. That will get you started on deeper cuts from Al.

    Haha thanks, needed a change. I wish I could be just discovering/getting into these dudes for the first time... Seriously amazing artists and some of the best/most distinct voices I've ever heard.

    Their third album, however, is complete bullshit and should be avoided at all costs.

    Their debut B.R.M.C. is a great place to start with fantastic songs such as "White Palms" and "Spread Your Love." The later Baby 81 has more breadth; highlights include "666 Conducer" and the lovely "All You Do Is Talk."

    Agreed about their debut, but i would go with Howl second. It was a stark change from their sound up to that point, and has some fantastic songs.

    If they kept on with the acoustic/rootsy feel after I would have gone that way too; it is a great album. I'd say I like 'em all but I just realized/was reminded that I missed their most recent. I just heard Beat the Devil's Tattoo for the first time last night.

    Inflammable Material is their punk rock classic, and it has "Suspect Device" and "Alternative Ulster" on it, and a lengthy but kind of cool cover of Bob Marley's "Johnny Was", so it's a good choice. Nobody's Heroes, however, might be deeper and better-written top to bottom.

    Agreed. And if you really want to hear how out-there Current 93 can be, check out Nature Unveiled or Dogs Blood Rising.

    Philip Glass. I am listening to North Star after finding in on vinyl for super cheap yesterday, and I'm pleasantly blown away.

    It's not his best album, but Harvest is the best entry point to his work.

    He's doing Crazy Horse at OSL. There are two places I'd point you. For a live set with a really good overview of Neil Young/Crazy Horse material, check out Weld. It was from their 1990 tour and it rips. For an album, Rust Never Sleeps. His last of the 70s, it's my favorite Neil Young album and a great way to get into him.
