"20 Jazz Funk Greats" is the third full-length album by industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle. It is considered to be the group's most accessible release, landing at number 91 on Pitchfork Media's top 100 albums of the 1970s. The track "Still Walking" also appears on the live album "Heathen Earth", although with a radically different structure.

    Miscellanea

    * Story has it that frontman Genesis P. Orridge's mother had asked him why he never did anything nice, and as a result the band dressed nicely for the album's cover photo. The band is standing on Beachy Head, a very popular location for those seeking to commit suicide in England.

    * The back cover features what appears to be the same image in black and white. A closer look reveals that a nude male corpse is now lying in the grass in front of the band.
