1. ILITCH/10 SUICIDES (1980)
    517481 7f165535 12d9 433e 85ca 2e98d2ae3ab3
    Crazy, unclassifiable French album with the song "Waiting For Mabelle" that I listen to on repeat
  2. JACKSON C. FRANK (1965 Columbia OG)
    517491 696c631b 8f42 4b9e a933 a607fb4c897a
    One of the best albums ever recorded and one of the saddest and most brutal career trajectories I've ever encountered//en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackson_C._Frank
  3. BRIGITTE FONTAINE/COMME A LA RADIO (1969)
    517501 91ce9d94 9c2c 4301 8759 2980f5f3369c
    Great French weirdness
  4. PEP LAGUARDA/BROSSA D'AHIR (1977)
    517511 574a146b 2b65 4287 b48b de60d1f20564
    Insanely mellow and beautiful folk from the coast of Majorca. The song "Cims I Abismes" rules every single summer of mine for 7 years and counting//youtu.be/CflvcS-ZiTI
  5. CAN/TAGO MAGO (1971 UA German OG)
    517521 e18dc5d0 224d 4f22 a825 0d74cb349fcf
    German Can vinyl ain't easy to come by.
  6. DAVID KAUFFMAN & ERIC CABOOR/SONGS FROM SUICIDE BRIDGE (1984)
    517531 74d9ecaf 7e05 4363 9543 1abb3b79de5f
    An epic private-press bummer.
  7. SID SELVIDGE/COLD OF THE MORNING (1974)
    517541 4675dc1e 5a39 4740 854e 68a196dffb2d
    RIP Sid. Maybe the best version of Shake Sugaree ever recorded (here called I've Got a Secret). Also, amazing album cover by the great photographer William Eggleston.
  8. MAYO THOMPSON/CORKY'S DEBT TO HIS FATHER (1970)
    517551 c6221edf 5721 4177 a4b9 4db9a807c152
    Probably in top five of my favorite albums of all time. Mayo is the brain of The Red Krayola, the deeply experimental TX 60s psych band. But here he is in singer-songwriter mode, and the results are totally unique and unforgettable. Super pervy when you get into the lyrics, but the whole thing has an off kilter charm that's undeniable. "Black Legs" and "Dear Betty Baby" are so great.
  9. THIS HEAT/DECEIT (1981)
    517561 2e5c31f0 f61f 4fb6 a417 10f76365a4f1
    The best music ever recorded in an abandoned meat locker. Nothing else really like it.
  10. JEAN-CLAUDE VANNIER/BRASSENS (1974)
    517571 d157a318 a4c5 4fb5 8c9f 47e190c29490
    Lesser known but excellent Vannier
  11. BYARD LANCASTER/PERSONAL TESTIMONY (1980)
    517581 d6af13ca d863 438a 8442 c0184f2e1c12
    The late jazz great plays every single instrument and makes every single sound himself on this incredible album.
