Afternoon! This Tricky album always reminds me of a screening of Monte Hellman's Cockfighter I caught years ago, starring Warren Oates and Harry Dean Stanton, where it was playing in the theater prior to the movie. It was probably put on randomly, but I always thought both the album and the movie had perfectly matching swampy feels.

The best guitarist currently preforming I know of is Mary Halvorson (it's just a coincidence the happens to be a woman). I'm sure you've at least heard of her.  It's amazing that such a seemingly mild mannered person plays with such a powerful and sometimes aggressive style. She's not a heavy metal musician but she puts virtually all heavy metal males to shame.

afternoon sophisticated Boomers, Sheila B, I hope you don't mind me suggesting a featured artist. her name is Tina Cole. she'll be turning 76 this August 4th. she was best known for playing the part of Katie Miller Douglas on my three sons. she also was one of the four king cousins. I came across a B&W video of her from 1965 singing "where is love". she's an unusual candidate I know, but I figure you might consider her because she is.

I prefer Gabtiel to Collins up front - & think Phil is best situated behind a drum set. Courses for Horses (to each their own).
But I liked That's All even then. Interesting there are these exceptions to what we think are these parameters. Like in the Disco Culture Wars - I was still fine with Donna Sumner & Moroder...
