My Top 14 Albums!

IMG_4453This little Top album meme is shamelessly nicked from other sources, such as Facebook posts, still – I enjoyed making up the list and listening to a lot of music to make up my mind 🙂

  • Alannah Myles – Alannah Myles – The very first CD I bought back in the day when they were still new.
  • Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan – in Session – Blues, say no more.
  • Amy Winehouse – Paradiso – Always good for a drinking session (sic).
  • Clanad – The ultimate collection – This one got me through some very hard times back in the early 90s.
  • Dinah Washington Finest Hour – Classic.
  • Earth and Fire – The Singles – These guys are the alternate Abba – a little more raw.
  • Huey Lewis and the News – Sports – The very first tape album I bought, and not regretted a single minute of listening to 🙂
  • Imelda May – Love Tattoo – I got engaged and married with “Falling In Love” playing on a loop in my head!
  • Jeff Wayne – War Of The Worlds (1985) – Say no more.
  • Mike Oldfield – Amarok – Love this – few words, but sets your imagination going.
  • Postmodern Jukebox – Squad Goals – PMJ take a normal song a fuck with it to transform it into a masterpiece – this is their most recent album, and one of their best!
  • Robert Schumann – The classical selection – Yes, it’s not Mozart – think I’ve grown out of my Mozart days!
  • Sky – Five Live – Sky – those drugged up hippies armed with the most amazing pieces of music I’ve ever heard – Live is always better.
  • The Very Best of Nina Simone – Always good drinking music 🙂

… And that’s my 14 – spread over 30 years of collecting music… There are so many more artists in the collection, this is a small slice of my personal history!
