OK, I'm a big fan of Herbie Hancock (in fact I'm going to see him tonight at the Barbican) and I have quite a collection of his music, from early stuff like Maiden Voyage right up to the 2001 release Future 2 Future, and the Live tributre to Coltrane/Davis he also did recently... Now I love all of Herbie's career except the aweful dirt he produced in the 80's... so, I just bought Sunlight from 1978 and it is equally filthy! My question is for all Herbie fans and is: what year does Herbie Hancocks music become unlistening for you? Then what year did he start producing listenable stuff again, in your opinion? I'm trying to define the period of his career that must be avoided (like the plague!) next time I feel like buying some Herbie?!
