Issued in 1997 by Work Records, Dan Bern's six-song EP Dog Boy Van was originally released independently in 1996, before his signing with the label. The record, like his self-titled debut for Work, kicks off with "Jerusalem" (the same recording), but what follows are five witty, insightful, moving tunes that hold their own next to his best work. Like Randy Newman, one of Bern's strengths is the fact that he'll risk offending someone to make his point; he says what needs to be said and then moves on. At the same time, he's not afraid to be sensitive, vulnerable or even self-deprecating. In the best folk tradition, he also has the knack for telling tall tales like in the hilarious "Talkin' Alien Abduction Blues," as well as the ability to extract timeless emotions from a timely subject, as in the affecting, Woody Guthrie-inspired "Oklahoma" (written about the bombing in Oklahoma City). Dog Boy Van is a welcome release from a vital new artist's past.

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.

Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
