Big Albums of September 1973: Mothers, Raspberries, Faust and More!

A look some of the biggest LP releases from 50 years ago this month. Click the links to order from Amazon.

The Mothers - Over-Nite Sensation
The LP that best exemplifies Frank Zappa's mix of lewd lyrics, sophomoric humor and sophisticated music, whether you like it or not. Highlights if you like 'em include "I am the Slime" and "Montana."

The Raspberries - Side 3
A fine slice of 70s power pop from Eric Carmen and crew, featuring singles "Tonight," "I'm a Rocker" and "Ecstasy."

Art Garfunkel - Angel Clare
Artie's best-selling solo debut includes his only Top 10 single, "All I Know," along with "I Shall Sing" and "Traveling Boy." Paul Simon and Jerry Garcia play guitar on country cover "Down in the Willow Garden," with Paul adding vocal harmonies.

Hailed as a Kraut Rock classic, this is also considered one of the band's most accessible releases, and well worth a listen.

Kool & the Gang - Wild and Peaceful
The one with "Jungle Boogie" and "Hollywood Swinging." Good stuff.
