I have a thing when it comes to discovering and finding music.
I tend to look for the oldest and most relevant release I can find, cherry picking when possible. I'm not the kind of person who just searches aimlessly, I try looking for top material, if not to push that feeling of being disappointed as far back as possible...That said, it's been hard for me to find old chiptune albums and releases, unless it's on 8bp, stuff that I know must be as important as the material being pumped out today. And indeed not every release is given the attention it deserves. I also get the feeling that this isn't a scene that prizes itself on historical benevolence, a lot of focus is on the here and now.
So my question is to all of you; what are some releases (albums, EPs, etc) that everyone should listen to? Doesn't have to be the greatest of their kind, (or recent, for that matter) but I want to know; where can we spark a discussion where we can list and discuss a lot of really great music, a place for veterans to indulge and newbies to discover some great things? Can it be here?
