I have Kimono my House and Propaganda.

What else of theirs is as good as these two?

Thanks -

The one right after "Propaganda", "Indiscreet" (1975) was still much in the same tradition as KMH & Propaganda, although not as good. I used to have "Introducing Sparks" (1977), "Big Beat"(1976), and "Whomp That Sucker" (1981), hoping they would bring back the magic of those two you have, but I finally gave up on'em. So, I don't know for sure but you might check their latest, "Lil Beethoven" - I've seen some positive reviews on that one. And there's a compilation or two available.

Update: it appears "Indiscreet" was re-released in '02: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&uid=UIDMISS70312091006472807&sql=A21rp281i056a

I have blue Balls -- they kinda went synthpop/disco by that point.
