Once we all get to the Desert Island, this island will be nicely stuffed with music!!! :-)
DANVIGNAU, thank you for flushing PF fans out of the closet, because I was a bit worried what is happening here. So, while we all On The Island, here is the list of my 5 Must-Haves which I see missing from the collection:
1) Tchaikovsky's 5th under Mravinsky
2) Bruckner's 8th under Celibidache
3) Dead Can Dance box set
4) Cocteau Twins box set
5) Klaus Schulze Mini-LP CD box set
Some other painful (for me) omissions on this thread here are:
6) Porcupine Tree
7) quite a few must have or "We Must Die" from ECM label, starting with "Khmer". Those who ever loved Miles must give it a listen!
8) Tubular Bells (!!!)
If I was forced to grab 5 it wouldn't be something I know. I have those feelings and memories implanted. I think it would be some classical music I've only dip my toe into and hope I chose wisely and I don't hate it. But just in case Id try and snatch a diamond of a Jerry Garcia Band show, and pray it wasn't a snoozy noodle fest. He always played great covers of all kinds of essential stuff snd covered the gamut from ballads, jams from heaven, reggae, bluegrass, timeless Hunter-Garcia collaborations. Honestly though a desert island would be music enough, sweet sounds. If I was given a choice between music or a surfboard though that would be tough, but with push come to shove, no contest. I'd leave the classical and grab my 7'2 Pendoflex.
