Album which you have listened to most?

We all have favourites and we all keep going back to them every now and then. Some maybe permanently lying next to our systems and have been for years.

Is there an album or two or three at the most which gets most of your attention and is played on your system most often? Not necessarily the best sounding but the one which you are emotionally attached to.

I thought I would ask for a single album but to make it easier for all you may name three of them.

If you have have had the album for more than five years, it qualifies for inclusion here.

The reason I decided to post this message is because I am interested in buying something interesting and if there are only ten people responding it means 30 albums for me to be on the lookout for.

Thanks a lot for your input (if you have read this far I know you will post your three albums also) :-)

My wife: October Nights, Stone Soup (little known, and a remarkable audiophile recording)
I rarely groove out anymore (an album's lucky to be played 1 to 3X a year if @ all), but in the 70's/80's I had this thing for "Marrying Maiden", It's a Beautiful Day.

After my first copy was showing problems following but 3 months of play I purchased a dozen copies @ dealer's cost from a friend (think they were $1.38 each). When I sold my LP collection in 1986 I still had 8 sealed copies.

One of these (plus an open one) went with the bulk of the collection, two went to a guy who always gave me good cash value for trades @ a local record shop and the rest I sold separately. Pre Internet this was a $25 LP when sealed.

I have been looking for a mint copy (thrift shops) for over two years now with no luck.

My second favorite groove album was the Rolling Stones LP with a "cake" made of weird stuff on the cover (can't remember the name). I liked to listen to it when I started the day/night (whenever it was I woke up). Probably went through 3 of these.

I upgraded from Philips 212 TT's to a Thorens/SME 12"/Sure combo in the 70's which pretty much eliminated LP wear. The only casualties were from clumsy/drunk/stoned friends using the stereo.

My third favorite album was (and still is) the soundtrack from "Black Orpheus". I currently have two copies (one as a backup) because it's getting difficult to find them in good shape. I would like to have this on CD, but have not run across one yet (again @ the local thrifts).

If you are still with me I have recently developed a strong liking for another artist (George Brassens who sings French popular music). He has a crude earthy quality (unusual for French singers) that reminds me of good/early American blues/folk artists. He is often accompanied by an acoustic guitarist that also shares these qualities. The LP notes are all in French and I do not know who the guitarist is (could even be him).

The material on the LP I'm currently over playing "Je Me Suis Fait Tout Petit" was recorded in 1956 & 1957.

My wife who understands French and who also pays attention to lyrics is getting tired of it though. I just listen to his voice and the music (not a clue as to what the lyrics are about).
