Even though most of it is covers, I think Otis Redding does a great job at making these songs his own and giving the whole album a consistent feeling. Definitely another "not reinventing the wheel" sort of album, but it's incredibly entertaining to listen to Otis's vocals and energetic backing band for a tight and short album like this.

God I've listened to this album like five times over the past two days and I'm still not tired of it. Ambitious song lengths and electric performances with enough variety to keep you interested the entire time. Definitely essential listening, and it deserves every bit of praise it gets.

Slightly inconsistent in comparison to later Nina Simone albums, but still a great introduction to her songwriting and performance style with some of her most iconic tracks.

It might not get all the love that Highway 61 gets, but it's still a spectacular entrance into folk rock for Dylan with some of his best and most iconic songs on it. It's just essential listening for any fan of classic rock, full stop.

I actually first heard this album a long time ago, but I never really returned to it. At the time it was one of the first jazz albums I'd listened to, and part of me felt like I just didn't "get it" enough to enjoy it.

But hooooly shit I see the appeal now.
