15 Seminal Albums

Some social media foo going around that I rather enjoyed:

The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it -choose fifteen albums you’ve heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I’m interested in seeing what albums my friends choose. To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, make your fifteen picks, and tag those friends you want to hear back from.

My choices focus on a few artists with whom I cannot live without! …and in no particular order

1. Cal Tjader / Mongo Santamaria – Latino

2. Phish – Rift

3. The Flaming Lips – Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots

4. The Flaming Lips – At War With The Mystics

5. The Grateful Dead – Without A Net

6. Genesis – Seconds Out

7. Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here

8. Queen – A Night At The Opera

9. Miles Davis – Kind of Blue

10. Medeski Martin and Wood – Combustication

11. Quincy Jones and Bill Crosby – the Original Jam Sessions 1969

12. Henry Mancini – Mr Lucky Goes Latin

13. Sergio Mendes + Brazil ’66 – Foursider
