Favourite 1 album wonders


Recommended Posts

 

  Please let everyone know what your favourite single albums are,  where the artist only had one studio release.   

 

Artists that had EP's or live albums are still eligible,  as only looking at studio album.

Colourbox - self titled from 1985 on 4AD records.   Brothers M & S Young brought out an studio album after a few singles and an EP with an amazing album with such a varied style. combination of synth, leftfield , dub, reggae and Soul with female vocalist the album is such an interesting musical trip.   

They never had a 2nd album, but you may remember them in their other band M/A/R/R/S with the global hit Pump Up the Volume then they sort of disappeared.

Max Q - self titled 1989 album.   Max Q were a collaboration between the famous Michael Hutchence of INXS fame and underground electronic legend Ollie Olsen.  They apparently met on the Dogs in Space movie.   Only the single album was ever released by them.

 

the album is superb and a stand out in dark synth. I still feel sad that Michael did not go down this route musically before he passed.

Does Live "Throwing copper" count? They may have had other albums, but does anyone know them? This still surprises me every once in a while.

Errr   No.   Live have had around 8 studio albums released.

 

  Quite a way off a 1 album limit  🙃

Mother Love Bone- Apple

Early Seattle grunge. Lead singer Andrew Wood died of a heroin overdose just before it's release date and that was it. Check out the band lineup below, producer Terry Date, mastering by Bob Ludwig.

Discovery - LP

 

Side project for Rostam from Vampire weekend but very different sound. Always wanted a second album.

DJ Metatron - Loops of infinity

 

Perhaps cheating as the EPS and mixes are long and there might be another

Billy Corgan was the drawcard for me, then I ended up following the journeys of Matt Sweeney, David Pajo & Paz Lenchantin ever since. Thanks for the intro Billy 👍

Blind Faith - Blind Faith

 

An almost accidental supergroup formed after Cream split. Stevie Winwood jamming in Eric Clapton's basement studio led to the formation of what could have been the biggest blues band in history. Also joined by Ric Grech (of Family and Traffic fame) and Ginger Baker (legendary basher-of-the-skins from Cream). They split after one album and a 3 month tour where their limited material meant a fairly abrupt stint on stage each night. It coulda, shoulda, woulda been monstrous if they had carried on.

 

We should be grateful for this one album and the fact they existed at all; but I still feel a little robbed by what might have been.

The Wild Tchouoitoulas (1976)

This is a one off album by a New Orleans Indian tribe vocal group, backed by the Meyers, Neville brothers and produced by Allen Toussaint. Funky and distinctive.
