I will not even remotely pretend to be an expert on reggae nor Bob Marley, but I’m still very happy to have Babylon By Bus in my record collection. This double live album is a perfect afternoon groove.
David Bowie’s 1974 live double album is one of my all-time favorites, to the point that it is somewhat difficult to write about because I’m too consumed by it. It is my perfect morning record, forever synonymous with coffee and no particular agenda. Does that mean the songs themselves are quiet and calm? Certainly not. It is an album that commands your attention; it refuses to be background music.
