My shame comes not from the fact that it's a compilation, but from the fact that it's a Starbucks compilation.

I will need lots of extra batteries, or perhaps one of those solar powered CD Players. Oh, and onsite service in case the thing dies, in which case I'll be hanging the CDs from wires to scare birds away from my vegetable garden ...

1. Loreena McKennit - The Mask and the Mirror

2. Laurie Anderson - Big Science (I actually wanted to take United States Live, but because that's a multi-CD set (4 CDs, 4 tapes, 5 LPS ... which is how I originally purchased it) it's been disallowed.

3. Douglas Spotted Eagle - Closer to Far Away

4. Chicago Symphony Orchesta - Carmina Burana (just in case you were looking for a copy of Carmina Burana, this one is the best!!)

5. Glen Gould - Goldberg Variations

Actually, there were quite a few classical music CDs that I would have brought along to the desert island, but the single CD rule axed most of those ideas ...

I've wanted to listen to the whole Ring cycle. At this point I don't even own any of it. I'd need the librettos too. And a German Dictionary. Would that count against my book total?

Books are in another thread.
However, there is nothing in "DID" that prohibits books.
I say, go for it.

As per perth:"My shame comes not from the fact that it's a compilation, but from the fact that it's a Starbucks compilation."
Don't worry. I'm sure it happens even in the best of families.

Guess I'm screwed then...three of my five are doubles (Lamb, White Album, Quadrophenia)...and I didn't even *realize* it until having read Jinx's post.

How's that for being a total geek?

this is one of those things where I want my answer to be esoteric and cool, and to only mention CDs from bands that stayed togetether for four hours in a closed down bar in London, but somehow managed to change music forever with the 6 song demo they recorded on the broken down karaoke machine in the men's bathroom, and to have everyone go, "Oh man, they were amazing. I didn't think anyone else knew about them - did you know that all four of those guys died in a freak telemarketting accident the morning after they finished that record?"

But my answer isn't nearly that cool. I just really like pop music.

ha ha. But when amongst us real-music-lovers, pop is esoteric.

I believe you're referring to the Chameleons [UK] and their seminal "Strange Times". What an awesome DID.

The one started by the Beatles/Beach Boys war, followed by the Raspberries/Badfinger/Big Star second tier? Or the one short for "popular"?

LOL. I was hoping that people would realize that, and maybe be introduced to music they wouldn't otherwise be aware of.

I managed an independant record store for about 3 years, and I was introduced to music from artists I wouldn't have normally heard. Quite a bit of it was good, some of it sucked, but it was an education in music.

I grew up with country & western, then got into punk, heavy metal, and hardcore. Now, I listen to just about everything.

Hopefully, this list will have opened up new music for someone. If it has, enjoy. If it hasn't, try listening to new stuff. You never know. You might find something you like.

Keep listing your discs. You might turn someone on to a favorite of yours.

Interesting.

Reviewing my list not quite two years after posting it, I wouldn't change it.

Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
Miles Davis - In A Silent Way

That's all I can definitively say right now.

I was just discussing Steve Vai - Passion & Warfare yesterday, but, I don't know, I love it, but, every day until forever? That's what makes it so tough. I might say some Herbie Hancock or Coltrane or alot of other things, but the three I posted, I'm pretty sure about those. Another one that might fall too far outside the criteria, but is still great, is Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels On A Gravel Road.
