I picked Prince, Cameo and Run DMC. I also dig the Gwen Guthrie.
On the Bragg, full disclosure - I bought it and the Talking With The Taxman... album at the time (I was 16!) and think LST is still very definitely one where he reined in his natural clunkiness and produced something with a rough grace. Obvious now, but that was really the high water mark... his unlovely yowl and mix of hectoring and sentimentality have not worn well.
Do talk back
