Music for a summer evening

 

I'm working my way through Rollingstone Magasines top 500 albums so I'm trying to make a note of the music I find and listing it as I go. 

 

Just stick these guys in a playlist and hit shuffle to make the perfect summer evening complete 

 

MUSIC FOR A SUMMER EVENING

MANU CHAO "CLANDESTINO"

Super chilled latino shiz, this would be the perfect soundtrack for a BBQ with friends.

Favourite track: "La Vie A 2"

 

THE PHARCYDE "BIZARRE RIDE II THE PHARCYDE"

West Coast answer to De La Soul - need I say more

Favourite track: "Passin Me By"

 

OTIS READING "DICTIONARY OF SOUL"

 One of the few male artist I've listened to that gave me the impression he actually *liked* women and his tunes make me feel good! 

Favourite Track: "Try and little tenderness"

 

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE

So frickin' groovy - for later in the evening when everyone is starting to flag

Favourite track: "Somebody to Love"

 

THE FOUR TOPS 'REACH OUT'

Full of amazing classics 

Favourite track: "Bernadette"

 

THE METERS 'LOOKA PY PY'

"These instrumentals — sampled by rappers including Nas and Salt-N-Pepa — are funk of the gods; tight, cutting, but also relaxed and inviting​" Rollingstone

Favourite track: "Looka Py Py"
