10cc’s sophomore album, Sheet Music, was released back in 1974, but every song still sounds so fresh. I’ll be honest, the only reason that I ever came across 10cc, is because J Dilla sampled their song, Worst Band in the World, on his final masterpiece, Donuts. I’m glad I decided to search out this album though, because now it is up there with my all time favorites. Sheet Music is all over the place in the best ways possible. At first listen, 10cc’s songs come off sounding wacky and zany, but the more you listen to Sheet Music, you realize that, there is a true sense of sophistication and professionalism to their music.
The “Vinyl” series consists of handpicked selections from my personal record collection. -Matt
