Robert Wyatt “Las Vegas Tango pt. 1″ I confess that i’ve never heard the Gil Evans original. It’s still bizarre to think that this was released from 1971, as it still puts a lot of the “experimental” indie rock bands of today in the shade. It’s rare to hear something this sonically edgy, eerily soulful, and absurdly playful.
(yes, this is a 20 MB mammoth, and yeah, you need the whole thing for the right vibe…)
