Billy Gibbons, celebrated ZZ Top guitarist, vocalist, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, surprises us with his debut solo album, the extremely unique Perfectamundo. Backed by a handpicked group of musicians, dubbed the BFGs (perhaps a nod to Gibbons’ initials, rather than a Roald Dahl reference), the album takes on an Afro-Cuban flavour that will probably come as something of a surprise to some of Gibbons’ fans and followers. It shouldn’t, though, as Latin rhythms are something deeply rooted in the guitarist’s life. Tito Puente, a friend of Billy’s bandleader dad, taught him some of the essential conga, bongo, maracas, and timbales rhythms way back in his childhood. As he put it himself, signposting the album’s clear debt to Latin rhythms, ‘banging away on ‘em came back like riding on a lost bicycle’. The album contains a mixture of cover versions of blues classics, notably the Afro-Cubanized take on the Lightnin’ Hopkins staple ‘Baby Please Don’t Go’, alongside the inimitable Gibbons guitar strut, which is nowhere more present than on ‘Pickin’ Up Chicks on Dowling Street’.

Nebraska: When Bruce Springsteen Laid Himself Bare

In 1982, at the height of his glory, the Boss surprised the world with “Nebraska,” a stripped back and entirely acoustic album. A timeless masterpiece bathed in echoes and reflections. An album that describes an America from the margins, and that many consider his best.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.
