Following on from yesterday’s #100-81 session, here’s the second of our 100 Best Albums of the 1970s mixes.

We’re counting down the finest albums of the 1970s over the course of this week, with the full list 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. If some of the albums on the list are new to you, this is as good a place as any to get to know them.

Our second mix, which covers the albums in the #80-61 bracket, comes from Joe Muggs; experimental soul, heayweight reggae, globetrotting free jazz and some good old fashioned V-flicking punk all feature. And where else are you going to find Bernard Parmegiani blended with Gil Scott Heron, eh? You can click on the track names below to read more information on the release it came from.
