The Runners-Up: AEOC

Source: burning ambulance.

The Runners-Up is a monthly column, which we first tried in 2013, wherein we will analyze an album that isn’t the consensus first choice or most canonical title by a given artist, but is one worthy of more attention than it’s received to date. The album we’ll look at this month is…the Art Ensemble of Chicago’s 1978 album, Kabalaba.
