The fancy vinyl reissue of Sleep’s proto-stoner classic Dopesmoker has been on high rotation at Flavorpill central now that we’ve descended into the depths of winter, and the necessity to get up and flip the LP halfway through has got us thinking about other great records that contain precisely one track. It’s a pleasantly music geeky topic to address for a quiet Tuesday afternoon, and we’ve amused ourselves by scouring our iTunes library for some of our favorite albums by artists with one-track minds. As it were. Check out our selections after the jump, and let us know if you have any to add.
Sleep — Dopesmoker
If you’ll allow us to choose a favorite, we’re going with this one — it’s the sound of strapping yourself into the new triple-chambered spring-loaded turbo-charged vaporizer your roommate bought home from that fancy bong shop in the West Village and smoking yourself into another dimension. In other words, it’s pretty much the best thing ever (and, for the record, your correspondent isn’t even a “dopesmoker.”)
