Rock Bottom (1974)
Continually, and rightly, regarded as an emotionally charged masterpiece Rock Bottom, like all truly great records, defines its own moonlit world. Defiantly graceful, listening to Rock Bottom is like being invited into another person’s consciousness: fluid, deep, mesmerising and utterly unique. An intense meditative song cycle recorded in difficult circumstances Rock Bottom adds another layer of meaning to the term soul music. Its influence on successive generations of musicians is almost as palpable as the influence it has had on anyone who has immersed themselves in its ever glowing, self-willing beauty.
