All month long at this blog, we have brought you the Rockaliser 30, a daily series devoted to classic albums that have been eclipsed, forgotten, misheard, or otherwise not given their propers. We began with Hawkwind and ended with Vanity 6, devoting space in between to everyone from Edan to Ike Turner, Solomon Burke to Rod Stewart. Our hope is that you found this series of two-and-a-half dozen essays edifying, enough at least to check out some of the albums in question. Above, we've compiled a 30-track playlist featuring every song spotlighted over the course of July. And here is the master list:
Day 3: Delinquent Habits (1996)
Day 5: Felt (1971)
Day 12: Bedhead, WhatFunLifeWas (1994)
Day 13: Manzel, Midnight Theme (2004)
Day 14: Rick James, Street Songs (1981)
Day 16: 801 Live (1976)
Day 18: Marvin Gaye, I Want You (1976)
Day 20: Edan, Beauty and the Beat (2005)
Day 27: Tank, Power of the Hunter (1982)*
Day 30: Vanity 6 (1982)*

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm due to re-enter the world of Bill Wyman's dreams:
