NICO'S ARTISTRY SKY-HIGH

Andy Warhol’s so-called “pop girl of ‘66” seemed like a dim and distant memory by the dawn of the 70s. Nico, a nomadic citizen of the globe, was back on European soil, and was, at this stage, a creative tour-de-force – in 1970 yet another fruitful association with John Cale easily set her apart as the world’s most intense and compelling artist from the alternative music scene. From the European avant-garde, she has cosmopolitan spirits this year in Köln's trance-rockers The Can, as well as Brittany's Brigitte Fontaine who unleashed the astonishing and wholly unique “Comme À La Radio” unto the world.

The many and varied strands of folk music account for no less than 9 of my favourite 16 LPs of the year with artists as diverse as the aforementioned Nico as well as Mr. Fox, Led Zeppelin, Loudon Wainwright III, Nick Drake, The Dubliners, Rodriguez, Simon and Garfunkel and T. Rex.

Laurel Aitken, Desmond Dekker and Bob Marley and The Wailers play key roles in helping to establish an album market for Reggae, whilst U-Roy brings the personality DJ craze to prominence on the LP format, toasting over last-gasps for the rocksteady beat.

The Beatles finally formalised their split and their final LP, the ho-hum “Let It Be”, suggests that was a good decision. Solo LPs are delivered by Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison; Lennon’s is best but fails to excite greatly, bar a couple of tracks. The popular Soft Rock / Adult Orientated Rock / Americana markets have started to spawn bores galore in fact, and the artists formerly known as the Fab 4 are far from being the worst offenders.

Following the tragic demise of 27 year-old Brian Jones in the summer of last year, music fans suffer a traumatic 4 weeks between September and October as Al ‘Blind Owl’ Wilson, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin all die separately aged 27 in similar drug-related circumstances. Just before his demise, Al’s fine parting gift is delivered via Canned Heat’s fifth LP, “Future Blues”.

Special mention must be made of The Last Poets, straight outta Harlem. They took their minimalistic African rhythm and Rap spiel straight to the Top 10 of the American album chart, lambasting white duplicity and black complacency in their key address to the black nation. Elsewhere, funk-soul brother Curtis Mayfield was re-enforcing the same message, encouraging the young, gifted blacks to move on up. With such raw and gritty passion on the agenda, music fans were winners.
