Desert island discs 

by Steve Yach


You gotta get up, if you're down in a hole. It's the Golden Age of Rock and Roll." The best sound to come out of the Golden Age of Rock and Roll has got to be Ziggy Stardust, and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie. This effort transcends its raw, polished, defiant, sophisticated nature and is the best thing Bowie has ever put down on tape.


Another British force to be reckoned with is The Ballad of Mott, A Retrospective from Mott the Hoople. The brash, fresh sounds of Britain's rebellion are unmistakable in this double album set.


An excellent example of transcendental rock is Pink World by Planet P Project. This little known group's "concept" double album rivals Pink Floyd for its use of excellent guitar work, memorable melodies and space rock originality.


For sheer groovin', the masterpiece double album Electric Ladyland by Jimi Hendrix cannot by overlooked for its incredible vision and musical aptitude. This is the gem of Jimi's evolution.


Lastly, the peak of musical genius of the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour. Most people think that Sgt. Pepper was the psychedelic peak, but a fresh listen to the Mystery Tour reveals more "experimentation" per song than any other album they created.
