Top 5 cds in a collection

By jkaras ·
The other day I posted in another thread a question involving 5 essential cds that you couldnt live without, that you would reccomend to someone who wants to broaden their horizions. Guru already gave his input and looking into his selections. I asked a fellow music buff in the office and he said it would take time to determine which. Upon my own reflection I too am having difficulty naming them that from start to finish deliver a great musical experience. Name them and why they are great in your opinion.

Wait...

by dnvrtechgrrl In reply to Top 5 cds in a collection

Just five??
I'm not sure that's possible.
For me, a great, well rounded collection will touch on every jenre that I have an interst in.

I can't narrow that to five.

More if you wish

I just thought the thread would get too long complete with description. The diversity of this site could expand my horizons for music, lately I havent been impressed with any complete cds. The ones that are quite good I play the bageezes out of where I get tired of it back to square 1. Also it a little more challenging to pick through the cream of the crop that you couldnt live without, such as for what ever reason they dont make it anymore and it is a prized possession or if stuck on an island yada yada yada.
I guess I'm looking for life changing music rather than hype, something that gives you goose bumps when you hear a certain note or vocal, or produce an emotional response when listening to it. I know thats asking a lot but most of my favorite songs are from others that turned me onto one I never heard or wouldnt have tried in the first place.

Tingles...

by dnvrtechgrrl In reply to More if you wish

Okay, that I can relate to:
Annie Lennox
Janis Joplin
Otis Redding
An indie band out of Denver "Opie Gone Bad"
and The Cure.
If Im allowed six, can I please, please have a little bit of John Coltrane? Maybe some Mama Cass?

Cool

by jkaras In reply to Tingles...

but I was hoping for you to point out certain albums/cds. I know some of them but dont own any of them except Desinagration from the Cure. I dont know which to get among all the musician's collection. I've always heard of Johnny Coltrane but I can honestly say I've never heard a song by him, wierd. I love The Mamas and The Poppas California Dreaming, now that was a great song even though I'm more into rock. AS for Janis I only know her famous stuff, it was cool to learn about her when I went to the EMI in Seattle that is a cool place to learn about music only problem is not enough artists participate. I loved Annie in Eurythmics and in her debut solo cd her second radio song was great but dont know it, I remember being wowed at her range.

Ooh names....

by dnvrtechgrrl In reply to Cool

I'm really bad with names. And worse yet, I'm at work.

I'll check out the albums at home tonight and see what I can come up with. I know that both Janis and Mama Cass are comp cd's and I can get you titles later today or tomorrow.

John Coltrane is a nice mix of blues and jazz. The Cure.. see if you can find the A and B sides. Not sure if that ever made cd, but it shouldn't be too hard to track down in either form.

Chat soon!

I left out classical. There's an opera I've been looking for almost four years now. It was done mostly by a choir out of Europe.
Tingles.. head to toe! I can't for the life of me figure out who performed it, just remember it was here in the states in 97. I'd like to have that also.
