Tuesday. This one was easier and most of it was got.
#3. Didn't show up. It was the Fab Four
#7. Sonic Youth Though I let the cat out of the bag on that one with [livejournal.com profile] strontium90.
#14. Linton Kwesi Johnson, the most incredible Dub Poet of all time. If you have even the smallest love of reggae, and have not heard this man, you must. I recommend a track called Reggae fi Peach, though I bet [livejournal.com profile] strontium90 has a few places he'd recommend starting as well.

Wednesday. Yes, some of these were obscure.
#2. Eureka girl made good, Sarah Barellies.
#4. Della Reese, my favorite Jazz Diva!
#5. Indie Pioneers Mission of Burma
#8. Former Smithereens frontman Pat DiNizio
#12. Billy Bragg
#13. Yeah, I'm not surprised nobody got The Fleshtones

I like quite a lot of LKJ. I still think that his most accessable album for the new listener is probably Ting an' Tines, which was the first album of his I ever heard (thanks, KUSF), and ran out and bought about a week later after being completely unable to get "Mi Revalueshanary Fren'" out of my head. Bass Culture, the album that "Reggae Fi Peach" is on, is probably my second favorite studio album of Johnson's, though if you love live albums like I do it's really worth listening to his 1985 concert album In Concert With the Dub Band, because it's just amazing how Johnson and the Dub Band can make political dissent sound just so damn fun.

He's got like at least twenty albums by now, I'm sure, but those are always going to be my favorites.

He came out with a second live CD a few years back, not quite as good (I don't think he had the full Dub Band backing him) but still pretty decent, and it has some of the Ting an' Tines tracks on it.
