Bob Seger -- Live Bullet (or Mongrel, depending on which day you ask me)
RENT -- original Broadway cast
Jethro Tull -- Aqualung
Tom Waits -- my own mix (that is a cop-out, but I just can't pick a favorite album, or even a favorite era)
Kate Bush -- The Dreaming
Kid Rock -- Devil Without a Cause
Maroon 5 -- Songs About Jane
Candye Kane -- Diva La Grande
Duke Robillard -- Duke Robillard Plays Jazz: The Rounder Years (best cuts from "Swing" and "After Hours Swing Sessions")
Scott Morgan Band -- Rock Action!
I'm sure in five minutes, I'll think "Man, how could I have left ________ off the list?"
How could I have left James Brown's Greatest Hits off my list?
Or at least a Zappa mix?
But what to ditch in favor of it. . .but can't be on the island without funk.
The Beatles - Abbey Road
Soundgarden - Superunknown
REM - Automatic for the People
U2 - Achtung, Baby
Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
Pearl Jam - Ten
I'm sure there are more, but those are the first that come to my mind.
How could I have possibly left the Black Crowes' "Southern Harmony and Musical Companion" off the list?
That's it -- I simply must have more than ten CDs on my island.
