Paul Weller's Must Have 12 Albums!

Paul Weller's Must Have 12 Albums!

About the show

Playing tracks by

Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley & the Wailers, The Zombies, Nick drake, Jon Coltrane and more.

Internationalists! The songs in this one come from an article Paul did for the US magazine, Entertainment Weekly in 2005. It was a feature where Paul chose his "Twelve Must Have Albums You Gotta Get, By Any Means Necessary!" There are some truly fantastic records here. I've put together what I hope will be a cool way for you to musically experience the article highlighting a couple of tracks from each album in Paul's 12 in two sides.

As always, I do hope you enjoy and always remember to "Keep The Torch Burning."

Peace and SOUL,
HeavySoulBrutha DaveB...

Note: Here's the full size scan of the article if you'd like to read Paul's comments on each album.

Love the Sly and Marley stuff, not so sure about Coltrane & Mingus. Guess it's all about personal taste. A great listen tho.

Ever wondered where the Edward Bastard Radio show got influenced? Must have been drip fed since 1976!! Keep this particular torch burning for sure!

PW was probably still on a Who kick around that time - Maybe he didn't discover Marvin 'till later...

SURELY he'd heard Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On' album before the "end of the 70's or early 80's...RIGHT?

Really interesting mix - pure GEMS for different genres - I think this is why Paul Weller is so good - he draws inspiration from so may sources - this is a message for us all too in life! THANKS FOR SHARING :)

Why no late 70s' punk/new wave I wonder? Interesting...

Cool collection! Wonder if he would choose the same now? Highlight for me has to be Mingus 'Devil Woman'. So Cool!
