Valerie Carter's first full-length solo album continued her musical involvement with Lowell George and the members of Little Feat, which had begun three years earlier when she was a member of the band Howdy Moon. "Just a Stone's Throw Away" also featured a stellar cast of other musicians, including Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, and John Hall. The album is at once funky and folksy, blending a variety of styles, from the haunting acoustic sounds of "Face of Appalachia" to the jazzy blues of "Back to Blue Some More." "Ooh Child" was featured very effectively at the end of the 1979 teen rebellion movie Over the Edge, while the title song is another great representation of the writing talents of Barbara Keith, an overlooked 1970s singer/songwriter whose self-titled 1972 album is worth seeking out.

Neil Young in 10 Albums

It’s hard to shout “Rock’n’roll will never die!” without sounding like an idiot. But Neil Young can pull it off. Easily. For over half a century, the Canadian legend has proved himself to be one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, constantly renewing himself and taking rock’n’roll down both rustic and rougher paths. The proof lies in these ten albums.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

1968/1972, The Stones’ Four Aces

Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street: in five years, the Rolling Stones sign their biggest records. Four masterworks that would shake up the history of rock ’n’ roll…
