Indeed. Sometimes less is more.
No filler on Sandinista in my opinion. And it's my favorite Clash album.
I do listen to almost all of the tracks on Sandinista!...but I can’t listen to the backwards track, so I feel OK describing it as “filler”.
Yes, the extra tracks on the cd totally mess up the flow,
Just the other day I was listening to Tommy and feeling somewhat annoyed at some of what I would have considered 'filler' at first, when I wondered what a single-disc version would sound like. I quickly understood it needs to be two-discs; there is no way else to do Tommy.
Arguably the most cluttered with filler double album of all time.
Most of the ones that came to mind have already been said. I will add:
Electric Wizard - Dopethrone
Bob's presence is minimal but still a great session.
Both have Filler IMHO.
I enjoy Sandinista, but I am the first to admit it contains lots of filler.
Must have been quite some thing to have bought it new back in the day, take it home to unwrap and then be presented with this gorgeous package containing 2 albums and 30 new songs.
The White album.
Electric Ladyland - Jimi Hendrix
The Wall - Pink Floyd
Babylon By Bus - Bob Marley
London Calling - the Clash
Live at Budokan - Bob Dylan
A double album? Not my copy.
Electric Ladyland- If you appreciate the 2 short soundscapes
Exile on main street- If you have no trouble with Casino Boogie, Turd On The Run or Sweet Black Angel
Eat A Peach - If you enjoy Mountain Jam
Live at Fillmore East- If you like the band
The White Album - If you love the band
Blonde On Blonde - If you like Rainy Day Women & LS Pillbox Hat.
Love to have a double album version of this.
it really was....each and every time.
In other words, these albums contain no filler, provided you ignore this track, and that track, and this other.
That is, they contain filler.
eagles - live
CSNY - 4 way street - not a wasted note on the whole thing
CPR - live at the wiltern
allman brothers - fillmore
jackson browne - solo acoustic 1 & 2
crosby*nash - s/t 2004 - even though it is less than 80 minutes and could have been a single album
the who - tommy
chicago - II
The Wall? I'd say there's 3 1/2 sides too much, but that's me.
Glad that Crosby/Nash is a double. Not keen on long single albums.
If you like all songs = no filler.
If you don't = filler.
The White Album, Tommy, All Things Must Pass, Exile on Main Street, The Wall, London Calling, all come to mind.
I really do love this record. It gets overlooked...but it is a real high point for this band.
