An Uncharted Desert Isle

Rashomon’s been asking bloggers what their top 10 albums to take on a desert island are. Here’s my ten (at least right now in my present quasi-bronchitis mood, and discounting classical):

1. Johnny Cash, At Folsom Prison
2. Bob Dylan, Blonde on Blonde
3. Janis Joplin, Cheap Thrills
4. Jurassic 5, Quality Control
5. The Kinks, Something Else by the Kinks
6. Miles Davis, A Kind of Blue
7. Minor Threat, Complete Discography
8. Nirvana, Bleach
9. Sly and the Family Stone, Fresh
10. The Who, Tommy
10. Hank Williams, The Complete Hank Williams


  1. How does one get electricity or batteries on a desert island? I can never get past questions like that when lists like these come up.

    I haven’t heard some of these cd’s, but it looks like a pretty respectable bunch overall.

    Off the top of my head:
    1. A Love Supreme – John Coltrane
    2. Graceland – Paul Simon
    3. The White Album – the Beatles
    4. Highway 61 Revisited – Bob Dylan
    5. Kid A – Radiohead
    6. Greatest Hits – Bob Marley
    7. Changesbowie – David Bowie
    8. The CD of JB – James Brown
    9. When I Was Born For The 7th Time – Cornershop
    10. MTV Unplugged – Nirvana
