    In principle I agree with you but to be honest I don't know if I loathe what they are doing with Bowie because he wouldn't approve or just because I find it extremely annoying. The live sets available only on their website take the cake for the most idiotic release plan of the last years for any major artist.

    Those Live Adventures releases were just designed to annoy the most people in the fastest time possible. If they'd have taken all the copies to the top of the Chrysler building and thrown them from the top floor the distribution would have been a whole lot better. Brilliant they were not!

    Yet it's for many his best album, and for a whole lot of people (including me) his only one.

    I love it. And I can still find pleasure in some of his other albums.

    Ween - Paintin the Town Brown (1999)

    From Wikipedia: This album was initially meant to be the first release on Ween's own record label Chocodog, but Elektra took the project away from the group and released it themselves. This would serve as part of the basis for Ween's departure from Elektra.

    Hardly the only Jonathan Richman album, but you could make a case for its being the only Modern Lovers album.

    I assume any release after Prince's death has been mentioned already.
