Public Image Ltd. / Album

I could be wrong I could be right. On PIL's phenomenal fifth long-player, John Lydon amassed an impressive cast of collaborators including guitarist Steve Vai, drummers Tony Williams and Ginger Baker, and Bernie Worell on keys, among others.  

With bassist / producer Bill Laswell and Jonas Hellborg on electric and Malachi Favors on upright, Album/Cassette / Compact Disc (depending on the format) bursts forth with heavy pocket grooves fused with jazzy counterpoint.

Waxed in 1985 at The Power Station, Electric Ladyland, Quad, and RPM in Manhattan- to my ears this is one of the eminent "New York City" albums of the 1980s.
