This was released in 1986, one of the later incarnations of this often wonderful folk band.
Spirogyra Put Out That Fire

The English prog/folk/rock band only lasted a few years in the early 70s, but they were awfully good. Then they reformed in the late 00s and still had it.

Richard Barone Odd Girl Out (feat. Jill Sobule)
Glow (Deluxe Edition) RBM Special Editions 2010
Barone is one of the best pop/rock songwriters most people don't know. This is still his latest album of original material.

They went through a lot of changes during their heyday, but the records are worth seeking out.

Some records never get old.
Peter One Kavudu
Come Back To Me Verve Forecast 2023
An immigrant from the Ivory Coast, he's lived in Nashville for more than 25 years, and his new record is rather singular and quite good.
Youssou N'Dour Takuta (feat. Babatunde Olatunji)
History Naive 2019
I'm not sure when this was recorded, but it's a cool slice of N'Dour-ness.

Chico Buarque Renata Maria

The great singer moves in a slightly jazzier direction this time out.

Walk Around The Moon Bama Rags Recordings 2023

A 1953 classic record.
Bo Diddley Hey, Jerome
Where It All Began Geffen 1972
I don't know where Jerome was for this cut - this was around the time he walked away from his long partnership with Bo Diddley. Great cut anyway.
Charlie Feathers Pardon Me Mister
Charlie Feathers Nonesuch 2005
There were, if I recall correctly, five CDs released at once back around 1993 or thereabouts, trying to put focus on neglected American musicians. This turned out to be my only Charlie Feathers record somehow.
