The A Pop Life panel has pondered the question which Prince performances resulted in the best live bootlegs. Bram, Edward, Erwin, Leon en Vincent went to work and came up with the ultimate list!
In 1984 The Replacements released their first truly great album: Let It Be. Their subsequent two albums Tim and Pleased To Meet Me were arguably even more stunning. A look back at 3-in-a-row brilliance!
In 2014 Prince released two albums in one day, using Warner Bros. as the record company! The story on PLECTRUMELECTRUM and ART OFFICAL AGE!
In 2004 Arcade Fire released their debut album. It stunned audiences over the world and was hailed as an instant all-time-classic. Deservedly so? Absolutely! A look back at a brilliant debut.

The second album by Claw Boys Claw, With Love From The Boys, is not available anywhere. A disgrace!
In 1994 Prince, using his old name, released the album Come. Prince was buried and the general public didn’t understand at all. The story on a forgotten, great album!
The American band Spoon started ay back in 1993, but in Holland they weren’t really noticed until 2014. At last: They Want My Soul is superb!

In 1984 The Gun Club started afresh on their third album The Las Vegas Story. Released in June 1984, it was the best of their career.
