  • Why Black Man Dey Suffer (Why Black Man Dey Suffer - 1971):

    Not in the above lists because it gets spoiled by the vocals about halfway through. The instruments are incredible, and almost the only saving grace of the song, but they start to sound repetitive several minutes in. The beginning parts of the song, including its vocals, would earn this one a msterpiece had the rest been kept at that level.
