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



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 "


Everly Brothers- A Date With The Everly Brothers. 

Aretha Franklin- Greatest Hits on Atlantic. 

Most everyone’s tastes are different. Many suggested albums I couldn’t play through one time. Or are already tired of. I am glad they work for someone.

I could live with West Side Story OST 1961. My first entry in a favorite complete album list. Latest entry is The Nightly Live.

Love The Magic Garden but it deserved a better recording.
