Is There Just One Single Album That Does It For You, Completely? Just One.

If you somehow got stuck in a situation (lol) and had to spend the rest of your life completely by yourself, all alone, on a desert island ... and, as part of your situation you only got to choose one album to spend the entire rest of your life with.

Let’s say, some weird circumstance, and you also had at your complete disposal the system of your dreams, that you had assembled thru the years. And thank goodness you were a prepper and you thought ahead to install a solar power system, so power would never be a problem either.

Kind of like Tom Hanks on that island, except instead of a just a soccer ball, you had your dream stereo setup and one album only.

One album and that’s it. Got to pick one. Not necesssarily your all time favorite album, just one you could live with for the rest of your life.

Is there any album that just completely does it for ya, on that level?

I’ll kick things off by sharing mine: Steely Dan, Aja



Ah...another Steely Dan Fan!  So sad that Walter is no longer with us.

Depends on the time of the year....the season.  I have different favorites depending on the time of the year.  I can listen to Steely Dan really most anytime and be happy.  Pink Floyd & Alan Parsons in the winter months.  I have the girl/women groups/singers all grouped together in the front of my collection and lean on them in the spring.  The CD player is currently stacked full of Xmas Music, mostly Mannheim Steamroller..  Bob James type music in the late summer/fall.  On bluetooth, with Pandora, at the pool in the hot summer, I like to listen to the Steely Dan channel, which is well rounded with a lot of similar artists....At the end of the day not one specific band or group or album is my absolute favorite.  You'll wind up with quite a few different likes from responding folks, I'm sure....Good post though!

Captain Beefheart's Mirror Man! Back in the Days of Yore I put this on the GE console while my family was having Thanksgiving dinner! It fit the mood well at low volume! An undisputed classic from the Captain!

One album !  Only one album !!

It's easy to narrow it down to some ,  Beethoven's Symphonies 5, 6, 7 & 9  or       "Poet a tribute to Townes Van Zandt " or Santana's  " Abraxas "  or                         Lou Reed's  " Rock and Roll Animal "                                                                          but the one would be David Crosby's  " If I Could Only Remember My Name "
