I reckon THE greatest recording of all time is Jeff Buckley (and guitarist Michael Tighe) performing "Hallelujah" off the album 'Grace'
Stunning vocal performance, great guitar playing, tonnes of emotion and brilliant dynamics.

Oh I forgot to add what do you think is the best recording or just best song in general?

I disagree on Hallelujah though I ilke the song.

My favorite recording ever is either Tom Waits "Clap Hands" or John Coltrane "Psalm".

for me it would have to be something from the likes of ladysmith black mambazo. those beautiful, pure, mesmerizing harmonies that wash upon your mind as if a flowing tide of a dream-like sensation

although this is the kind of topic that as soon as i hit the submit button on this post i'll think of a few more examples haha. i could see a lot coming from the 60's jamaican ska culture too

Was actually hoping you'd respond. Haven't heard of ladysmith but will listen later... and yeah, I was thinking of naming Fela Kuti's Zombie. The endless groove is just great.

I haven't been able to get my hands on the original Toots "Funky Kingston", just the American compilation version. It's bothering me haha

ladysmith black mambazo are incredible. the greatest vocal group of all time, & at their pinnacle without any form of backing music whatsoever (although that one album with an english chamber orchestra was stunning). a great starter song to represent what i was hinting around in my post would be something like "inkanyezi nezazi"

kuti crossed my mind straight away too, along with the likes of tinariwen, the early skatalites material & a number of other gorgeous soul soaked early ska harmonies from many great artists. there was such an astounding raw & heavily emotive quality to those recordings. people who ignore this era of music are doing themselves a huge wrong

One of the few threads you make that may make for interesting discussion. Nice.
