    Had to ponder over the Issac Hayes or 'You've Got The Funk'. The first five are non-negotiable though. Now I realise I missed out 'Are You Experienced?' Bollocks.

    This is a tricky one to answer and my choices might be different tomorrow.


    1) 'Deja Vu' Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (iconic and glorious album)

    2) 'Ten New Songs' Leonard Cohen (I don't understand a word he says, but it's wonderful)

    3) 'Alladin Sane' David Bowie (Can't go without 'Drive in Saturday')

    4) 'Walls and Bridges' John Lennon (A real favourite)

    5) 'Good News From The Next World' Simple Minds (Great rock, not a bad track on it)

    6) 'Aerial' Kate Bush (Beautiful content)

    7) 'Overnite Sensation' Frank Zappa (The master at work)

    8) 'One Size Fits All' Frank Zappa (The master at work again)

    9) 'Are You Shpongled?' Shpongle (Nothing else is quite like it)

    10) 'Gung Ho' Patti Smith (The greatest female rocker, you can't expect me to go without 'Lo and Beholden' or 'Persuasion', try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHFUAmZ51_Q and turn the wick up)

    Great minds must think alike About 60% of the albums that nearly made it on my list..... and well could do if I was asked again tomorrow, feature amongst other peoples lists! Or maybe we all have a "boring and predictable" similar taste and are in the same age bracket in the main!?

    Or the really good stuff transcends what is otherwise involuntary and pedestrian musical taste?

    Been pretty diverse so far. Surprised that Geoff is so into Zappa.
