Tpreaves grabbed all my favorites so I'll have to go with the second choices although like Elizabeth I'd have to keep all of some musicians(Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Van the Man, Miles, Keith Jarrett, Bruce, etc, etc...
Van Morrison- Astral Weeks Miles Davis- Kind of Blue Neil Young- After the Gold Rush Richard Thompson- Live(More or Less) Bob Dylan- Bringing It All Back Home
Pink Floyd DSOTM Amused to Death/Roger Water Sister Drum Astral weeks If I could only remember my name/Crosby Kind of Blue Walkin/ Miles Davis Brilliant Corners/ Thelonious Monk Michel Portal /Turbulance Famous Blue Raincoat Purcell O Solitude /Deller Consort Pergolesi/ Stabat Mater SXL 6153 La Fille Mal gardee/ SXL 2313
Again I am afraid I will only play this game if box sets count as 1 choice, sorry.
Puccini La Boheme/ Beecham/De Los Angeles/ Bjorling Richard Strauss Der Rosenkavalier/Karajan/Scwarzkopf Bach Cello Suites Janos Starker Blue Joni Mitchel Ella Fitzgerald sings the Gershwin song book, any of the LPs in the series
1. Velvet Underground -- Loaded 2. Charles Mingus -- The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady 3. Bob Marley & the Wailers -- Catch a Fire 4. Bob Dylan -- Biograph (not sure if this is cheating) 5. Rolling Stones -- Beggars Banquet
White Stripes - Under Great White Northern Lights (live) The Pixies - Death to the Pixies (live) The Birthday Party - It's still Living (live) Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie John Spencer Blues Explosion - Damage
I only have 3,000 LPs so my task is MUCH easier than Elizabeth's. While jazz is my overall favorite category, I must choose for variety. And that means samplings from several styles:
*Miles -- Kind of Blue (this would be #1 no matter how many I got to choose) *Brubeck Quartet -- Carnegie Hall Concert (includes hits from Time Out plus more variety) *NGDB -- Will The Circle Be Unbroken *Beethoven Nine Symphonies -- von Karajan/BPO (1962 recording, hey, the records came in one album box!) *Beatles -- Sgt. Pepper (or Rubber Soul or Revolver)
Now, where are Monk, and Mingus, and Bach, and Coltrane, and Zappa, and Talking Heads, and Mozart, and Simon, and KD Lang, and Satchmo, and Dolly, and, and, and?
WOW, lots of good album here that i haven't put on in years. I will put some on this weekend. My collection is somewhat small approx. 2000 LP's Jazz is really my thing so here it goes:
Miles (Kind of Blue) Duke Ellington (Jazz Party in Stereo) Patricia Barber (Cafe Blue 45rpm) Billie Holiday (Lady in Satin) Not recommended if you are on suicide watch. John Coltrane (Blue Train) And for the non Jazz in me: Alyson Krauss (Forget about it)
