    Default Quantum Jump Apart

    This thread is concerned with totally disparate (in terms of
    musical quality/ style ) lps BY THE SAME BAND/ARTIST.

    Its amazing how many bands/artists
    put out amazing lps, yet within a year or two managed foul dross
    poles apart from the good ones. (And its by no means Law that the
    earliest releases are always the corkers.)

    So, can you think up any examples?

    Please, what The Deacon is really thinking of is SUCCESIVE (in lp release date) examples. Non-successive examples are permitted, but you get more respect if you give me consecutive examples.

    For instance: sure, Dylan made a quantum leap from acoustic folk to electric rock. Instead of giving me Dylan's debut lp to "Highway -wotsit - Revisited", a much better submission would be sequential : "Another Side of Bob Dylan" to "Bringing It all Back Home".

    Understand?








    ............................

    The Deacon gets the ball rolling:

    LOU REED "Sally Can't Dance" ('74) vs "Metal Machine Music" ('75)

    .............................


    One stipulation -to simplify things, just studio lps, okay?



    And it would be good for you to explain your submission in a line or two. (Like , in my suggestion, Reed departing from the usual drivel to pure industrial-noise music.)


    Oh yeah - its not necessary to have it in proper order.
    For instance the group Hairy Chapter had, more or less , a sea change with the monstrous-heavy "Can't Get through" lp compared to the awful "Eyes" lp. But, at the moment, I don't recall which came first - and I don't particularly feel like looking up the discography just right now.

    BLUES CREATION "same" (bluesrock) vs the great "Demon & Eleven Children"



    HUMBLE PIE "As Safe As Yesterday" vs "Eat It"

    Hapshash And The Coloured Coat "Featuring The Human Host And The Heavy Metal Kids" For 1967 this trio's lp was a total game-changer.
    Funk and Krautrock way before.
    Utter freak-out.


    Compare this to their almost country(!), ****** lp, "Western Flyer".
