Have you noticed that major artists get a load of publicity and hulabaloo everytime they release a new album, even if it sucks, while many lesser known artists record great albums that hardly anyone notices? I'd like to learn about some great but obscure albums out there that you might have heard, not necessarily for the bass lines. Here are two of my favorites: Captain Swing, by Michelle Shocked. This album is all over the place stylistically, It has Rock N' Roll, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass and God knows what else. Some people say albums like that lack cohesion, but Michelles's voice keeps it all together. Great arrangements too! Shelter, By Lone Justice - Very 80s but hell, it was the 80s. Great songs and musicianship. Lead singer Maria McKee is now flying solo. Will C.
