Stream the fourth of FACT’s Best of the 1970s list mixes


We’re onto the fourth of our 100 Best Albums of the 1970s mixes!

We’re profiling the finest albums of the 1970s over the course of this week, with the complete rundown being revealed on Friday. In addition, we’re also uploading a daily mix to accompany each clutch of records, each curated by a different member of the FACT team, designed to showcase the diversity and quality of the albums we’ve plumped for. You can still catch up with Monday’s #100-81 session, Tuesday’s #80-61 and Wednesday’s #60-41.

The fourth mix, based on the #40-21 bracket, has been pieced together by Joseph Morpurgo and features some genuine chart hits (!) alongside a slew of wibbly synthscapes, motorik euphoria, bare-chested disco sleaze and complete rock’n’roll meltdown.
