Robert Wyatt
Sunday, April 22 2018 @ 10:06 PM CDT

Here's an album that may go over like a lead balloon here, but it's mighty important to me, so I thought I'd post it.
I think that the most critical point of any music is the moment it enters your life; if you are a careful and avid listener, the music becomes a part of your life in ways you never could have anticipated. This, for me, is music of change: it has sustained me in times of great personal crisis, and is my go-to album whenever big moves are afoot.

I'm especially fond of the bit that starts at 33:35. It never fails to make me smile (not least because that's Fred Frith playing piano).

Love,

MoM

It's nice to agree on something - and fitting that it's music. Thanks for sharing this here. Robert Wyatt was an amazing talent and a man of deep convictions.I have a soft spot (no pun intended) for Rock Bottom as well.
His inspired interpretations of cover material made him more accessible to many. This version of Elvis Costello's "Shipbuilding" is a favorite of mine.

It's better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done.
