The Iron Muse
Originally released in 1956, Iron Muse was the first of its kind, a collection of folk music derived almost exclusively from the experiences of industrial workers in the north of England. Folklorist A.L. Lloyd went inside blazing steel mills, onto hard iron railways, and into dank boiler rooms in search of the workers' music and their voices, and helped paint a vivid picture of life inside the industrial towns and add a new chapter to the history book of traditional folk music. - Johnny Loftus
Earth, Wind & Fire
Earth, Wind and Fire
Evidenced by their 1971 self-titled debut, EWF was already fluent in the close harmonies of soul's classiest groups, James Brown's funk, and the vocal prowess of Sly & the Family Stone. To these they added horn heavy arrangements, exceptional musicianship and focused compositions that reflected the positive influence of civil rights era, and the need for community in dealing with issues. Artistically, this is easily one of their best albums. - John Bush
