Talking Heads
77

Not the title of a late period Adele record but the debut album from fidgety New Yorkers Talking Heads. It introduced the world to their distinctive strum 'n' yelp sound coming across as something like the Modern Lovers on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Contains their early hit Psycho Killer famously parodied in the Fools 'hilarious' Psycho Chicken.

Talking Heads
Fear of Music

Nowadays 1979’s ‘Fear Of Music’ is largely remembered as the Talking Heads album with ‘Life During Wartime’ and ‘Heaven’ on it -  probably something to do with the fact that they are the only two songs from the record that made it into 1984’s ‘Stop Making Sense’ (though ‘Cities’ was included in the extended version of the film). This legacy does ‘Fear Of Music’ a great disservice - sure, those are both absolutely top tracks, but the whole album really is a triumph of the airless agit-funk style that the group had lasered in on throughout 1977’s ‘77’ and 1978’s ‘More Songs About Buildings And Food’. It also bridged the gap between those LPs and the transcendent polyrhythms of 1980's ‘Remain In Light’. This is Talking Heads at their most frantic, paranoid and couched, an effect heightened by Brian Eno’s daring production. The frenzied ecstasies of ‘I Zimbra’, ‘Animals’, ‘Memories Can't Wait’ etc. are pretty much unparalleled in the post-punk era.

Madonna
Like A Virgin

Like A Virgin was the second album by Madonna, released in 1984, it was the album that propelled her to global superstardom. It’s packed with hits such as the title track, Material Girl and Angel. A lesser known album fact about this album that will go down well today is that it was produced by Nile Rogers. Rogers also plays guitar on the album with his Chic bandmate, the late, great Bernard Edwards playing bass.

Madonna
Who's That Girl (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Madonna was no stranger to acting in 1987 when she starred in Who’s That Girl alongside Griffin Dunne. It was her 5th role. She also performed most of the soundtrack, which just happens to be getting a gleaming reissue on crystal clear vinyl. I say she performed most of the soundtrack as it also includes songs by Scritti Politti, Duncan Faure, Club Nouveau and Michael Davidson.
