I'll go with Galt, better quality and more compositional depth than Dennis. I think Serge Gainsbourg and David Axelrod could easily be added to your list.
Big Stacks from Kakalak
apples and hash pipes manyou guys are comparing a first call super accomplished sight reading session guitarist who played on hundreds of soul tunes on Motown [with the funk brothers] golden world and LOT's of micro labels who then went on to release a decent run of solo LP's with singles that charted as high as #1 and became ghetto breakbeat anthem [scorpio] to a piano player/soundtrack/show tune/broadway/off broadway composer.It's really a disjointed comparison but as a guitar player I will have to side with DC.
Can't say I have a lot of Galt.What are some LPs to look for?
I guess I was looking to see which stack of records people would choose between:a) a pile of all of Dennis Coffey's records, or b) a pile of all of Galt MacDermot's records.
