Great Albums with one (really) naff track

    Lennon hated it too, you're in good company.

    You could put a cracking Beatles compilation Album together that would be totally unlistenable. Quite a fun Item, I'd buy it but it wouldn't get played.

    Spoilt for choice surely.

    Love – Da Capo. A brilliant album, second only to Forever Changes but it has one dodgy track; Revelation.

    I was going to nominate Equator from Sparks' Kimono My House, but humming it to myself I'm quite liking it now, and it has become an earworm.

    Islands is OK at best and any song from it would be naff on The Band or Big Pink (Georgia excepted, but that's a cover made great by Richard Manuel's vocal).

    Out of all Macca’s dodgy efforts it’s certainly not the worst one :D
    (Seemed to go down well at Glasto too)

    Also, Talking In My Sleep from Four Sail. Jars with the rest of the album. Whereas everything else on it sounds pure late 60s, that one seems to hark back to around 1964.

    Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast, on Floyd's Atom Heart Mother. Bit of a waste really. Love the other three tracks on the second side. Might be in a minority here, but I do like the AHM suite on side 1 as well.

    I could never really be doing with LA Blues on The Stooges ‘Fun House’ (cue cries of ‘best track on the album mate!)

    Unfashionably, I rate AHM as one of Floyd’s best albums and I even like the breakfast track.

    Embarrassed to say that I haven’t got Four Sail and can’t remember what it sounds like.

    Shame it's the whole of side 2 :eek:

    Quite, that’s how good the rest of the album is.

    oh god yes... you win. I bet Miles is still smiling ;) about the inclusion of 'Nothing Like You' - 1:55 of the most unlikely music on any Miles record

    I was going to say ' Well Its True That We Love One Another' on 'Elephant' by The White Stripes, or 'Mother's Lament' from 'Disraeli Gears' by Cream... but the Miles Davis one beats them

    I don't dislike it but know what you mean, it's severely out of place. Much like Hot Dog on Zep's In Through The Out Door.

    "We'd like to make the album just under two minutes longer. Do you have anything we might be able to use? Ideally it should be a completely different band in a completely different style recorded years earlier with a cheesy crooner. How about an outtake from that Christmas compilation we did? That would be perfect..."

    How's about Husker Du's mighty and magnificent 'Flip Your Wig'.

    What were they thinking including this...

    I wonder how long a thread about this would last on the Steve Hoffman Forum.
