It is known for its tongue-in-cheek title and artwork, and has been hailed as the band's best work, with UK magazine Fact naming it the best album of the 1970s. 20 Jazz Funk Greats is the band's first full studio album, as prior albums contained both live and studio recordings.

20 Jazz Funk Greats is Throbbing Gristle’s third album. 20 Jazz Funk Greats Q&A. Producers Sinclair/Brooks & Throbbing Gristle. More Throbbing Gristle albums. Thirty-Second Annual Report.

It is known for its tongue-in-cheek title and artwork, and has been hailed as the band's best work, with UK magazine Fact naming it the best album of the 1970s. The album was produced using electronic musical instruments and effects units, primarily from Roland and Boss

This move wasn't entirely unprecedented, as their 1978 single "United" was an uplifting slice of utopian synth pop, and eventually became one of the band's biggest-selling records

20 Jazz Funk Greats will take you to another mind-state from start to finish. With a nice pair of headphones and a dark room, it really will move you. It’s more like having an experience than music, considering Throbbing Gristle is more of an art than music. Cheesy as it may seem, any of Gristle’s CDs, especially this one, really take a few listens to sink in. Once they do, damn, it’s a hell of a trip.

You could write an entire book about the sly wit and polymorphous slipperiness of 20 Jazz Funk Greats, whose kitsch seaside holiday photo on notorious suicide spot Beachy Head tips off the viewer to the deliberately fishy insincerity of its sonic contents. In a smash and grab that testifies to both increased musical ambition and a relentless urge to wrongfoot audience expectations, 20 Jazz Funk Greats finds the band waking up from . A's dark night of the soul and feeling curiously frisky.

No, 20 Jazz Funk Greats’ most impressive trait is its timelessness. Left to simmer in its own juices, the band’s 1979 masterstroke exhibits no dust crackle or incense-soaked hokum.

Same as mine - IR 008 A and IR 008 B. Bought it at a reasonable price at a local store in Sweden. Looked brand new, so I new it had to be a reissue, but so it turns out to be a counterfeit... Well, still sounds great though!
