    The Perfect Release LP (1979)

    Tomato

While I want to pick her I'm the One LP as the essential Soul Strut related Annette Peacock LP (check out the avant psych funker "Pony"), I chose the less trendier Perfect Release LP.  Annette Peacock approached rock music in a weird, abstract way experimenting with electronics and using her voice like a free jazz saxophonist (hitting sour notes for effect).  While cool, it was a little too unsettling for the average listener.  This is her more accessible West Coast / AOR  style album from 1979 with plenty of smooth grooves, warm tinkling Rhodes passages,a nd a little slap bass to keep the sedated listener alert.  It made it's round with the crate diggers thanks to the 14 minute spoken word funk track "Survival" popularized by J-Live's "Braggin' Writes".
