Sacred Songs

This is the sort of album that people frequently flip past in record and charity shops, assuming that it's 'just' an album by that guy out of Hall and Oates. I've probably been guilty of that myself in the past until I learned of his collaborations with Robert Fripp (from hearing Fripp's Exposure album).

A lost classic - recorded in 1977, but shelved by the record label until they were persuaded to release it in 1980 - this album is allegedly the first proper use of the groundbreaking Frippertronics tape delay system that Robert Fripp pioneered. The best example being on the bonkers, and wonderfully jarring, Babs and Babs.
