Roberto Cacciapaglia - The Ann Steel Album (1979)
Roberto Cacciapaglia
The Ann Steel Album (1979, Durium)

"A sharper reviewer would likely have many things to say about this album, and I wish I could do better for you all, I really do, but to be frank I'm just not in the zone today. Off the top of my head I'd say there are obvious comparisons, with regard to its quirkiness, to things like Laurie Anderson or The Flying Lizards, maybe some YMO (?) - there's definitely something else I was thinking of previously and can't remember now - but beyond comparisons this is simply a really wonderful pop record that I highly recommend. Chew it hard my little buddies!" - DD

Frank Zappa - Sleep Dirt (1979) (LP)
Frank Zappa
Sleep Dirt (LP) (1979, Discreet)

"Let me start by saying that I've long been a man of the Zap. In my entire record collection, the largest plot of land belongs to the mother of invention. Yet, for some ungodly reason, not only have I just recently discovered this incredible (and wholly instrumental) menagerie of beauty from the late, great conductor of slime, I've also posted exactly zero albums of his on this blog. Great googly-moogly, to be sure! For shame! But here we are at last my friends, so get that greazy greaze and smother!" - DD
