My five favorite discs? First up would have to be Miles Davis' Kind of Blue because I could listen to this album twenty four hours a day and not get tired of it.
Second up would be Otis Redding's Live in Europe, an album from the king of soul that can make me dance, laugh and cry.
Next would be my soundtrack for the desert island, Pink Martini's Sympathique. This is the best music from the past ten years and I love it. (I would hope they would do a concert on the island).
I would also have to have Seal's Seal. Again, it's one of those albums where each cut is great and if I was all alone I would blast "I'm Alive" from this excellent album.
And last but not least, to satisfy my classic rock urges, The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live at Winterland, the best music to rock out to when I need it loud.
