Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five – The Message (1982)

November 16, 2019

[Album 692/1001]

“I like Johnny Cash and Grandmaster Flash (Flash) Flash (Flash) Flash”
– Kid Rock, American Badass

His name is Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid Rock. Je m’appelle Geoff.Grandmaster_Flash_&_the_Furious_Five-The_Message_(album_cover)

We’re not often mistaken for being twinsies!

But I’m pleased to report that I’ve managed to find a hint of common ground.

As after listening to Johnny Cash’s albums on the 1001 list (Folsom, Sam Quentin, IV) and this album by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, now when I sing along with American Badass, I’m singing the truth.

I too like Johnny Cash and Grandmaster Flash (Flash) Flash (Flash) Flash.

  1. Never heard the album, but love the Venn diagram.

  2. Where do you stand on Lynryd, Seeger, Limp, Korn, The Stones, David Allan Corn and No Show Jones? 😉

  3. You’re the Kingston Bad ASS Geoff! I think you will like my Speical Sunday review posted tomorrow as it has a Kingston connection!

    • I don’t know if I can take credit for putting Kingston City back on the map, singing hey hey hey!
      And a Kingston Connection – that sounds good to me Deke!

  4. Genius LP. They did it all first.
