 Hi Ohead,

Very interesting to read your list.  I few things there that I'd forgotten about and some things that are completely new to me to check out, which is great, thanks!   i've seen the name of Eloy a lot but never heard them, will have to check them out.  I know Suns of Arqa but never heard 'Solar Activity' so likewise I'll be looking out for that.  I had " Drums are Dangerous" on vinyl. I really loved that album. Don't know why but I seem to have lost my cd of that one, I'll have to see if I can  find it on ebay as I did with 'Live in Iceland". 

Here's my top 20, in no particular order.  I thought that I would struggle to find 20 albums that I really love but the opposite was the case.I didn't  even find room for the likes of Juan Atkins (Model 500), Jeff Mills, Jah Wobble, Hawkwind, Rakim, etc


Inner City Unit "Passout - the 360 degree psyco-deleria  sound  /Nik Turner's Sphynx "Xitintoday" / System 7 "point 3: water remixes"

Clock DVA "Signs" / Tim Blake's Crystal Machine "Live in Exeter" (Official download) /  Syd Barrett "The Madcap Laughs"

/Robert Johnson "Centennial collection  / Daevid Allen "Divided Alien playsbax '80"  / The Damned "Damned, Damned, Damned"

/ Dreamspirit "The Manson Spirit Problem"  / Shpongle "Are you Shpongled?"  / Halluncinogen/Ott "Hallunciongen in Dub"

/ Captain Beefheart "Doc at the Radar Station"  / Terry Riley "In C"  / Psychic TV "Towards the Inifinite Beat"

/ Plastikman "Sheet One"   / SlackBaba "And the beat goes Om...."  /Miles Davis  "Dark Magus"  /Banco de Gaia "Last train to Lhasa"

I have just discovered a band from Sweden called "My Brother the Wind" Really high quality space rock. Similar to Oresund Space Collective but more consistent in some ways. Excellent stuff IMHO.
