Thievery Corporation - MCCM: The Mirror Conspiracy (2000)

The Kid Daytona - The Interlude (2010)

This is a free album from The Kid Daytona. I believe this is free because of the samples used would have cost him a fortune and without the samples the production would be rather dull. As it is now though this is excellent music all around.

Alain Goraguer - OST La Planète Sauvage (1973)

This is the soundtrack to the 1973 french animated movie La Planète Sauvage. It is done entirely by Alain Goraguer who worked with Serge Gainsbourg.

Doris Duke - I'm A Loser (1964)

This album is supposed to be a depressing look at southern soul music but it honestly cheers me up. The subjects she sings about are depressing but there is something about the plight of her songs that give me an uplifting feeling. Regardless of the subjects this album is amazing, the bass lines employed here are some of the best in soul music.

2. I Can’t Do Without You
3. Feet Start Walking
4. Ghost of Myself
5. Your Best Friend
