Well... I don't ALWAYS listen to these, but over the years they're the ones I've played most:

 

Music For Airports: Brian Eno

The Last Waltz: The Band

Paris, Texas: Ry Cooder

Echo Park: Feeder

6 & 12 String Guitar: Leo Kottke

Bestmamo': Ustmamo' (a compilation)

Sticky Fingers: The Stones

The Velvet Underground & Nico: VU

Of Skins & Heart: The Church

 

 

I have no idea what the 10th would be.

 

"Before Hollywood" by the Go-Betweens? Led Zep IV? "R. Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders"? "If You Want Blood"? "London Calling"? And then there's all the bootlegs whose name I don't even know.

Favorites change routinely but these are the albums I've probably listened to the most over the last 30 years. I really need to find a CD of the Ventures album I listed. It is currently out of print. Theme From Batman is definitely my favorite rock instrumental album of all-time.

 

Beatles - Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper

Roxy Music - Avalon

REM - Murmur

Sade - Diamond Life

Ventures - Theme From Batman

Guadal Canal Diary - 2 x 4

Jason and the Nashville Scorchers - Fervor

Elvis Presley - Top Ten Hits

Mudcat's music on Soundclick

Let's see...

 

Beatles - A Hard Day's Night (all Beatles albums qualify, this is just today's choice.)

Rolling Stones - Aftermath (British Version)

The Who - Quadrophenia

The Kinks - Face to Face

John Hiatt - Bring the Family

Nick Lowe - Party of One

Badfinger - Straight Up

Jimi Hendrix - Axis Bold As Love

Chuck Berry - The Great Twenty Eight

Pretenders - Learning to Crawl

 

Ask me tomorrow and you'll get a different top ten!

DOH! I have to rethink this! The Scorchers and Elvis albums are being replaced by the following:

 

Marshall Crenshaw - Field Day

Nick Lowe - Labour of Lust

 

I have worn these two out over the years. Totally spaced on them as I made my original list.
