Rick,

That is mean. Why can't I have 5 artists, or 5 GB of songs?  :P

I'll have to think about this for a bit before answering.

First artist (don't know which album yet - perhaps a mix of 15 favorite songs): Eva Cassidy

Miles Davis Bitches Brew (and if I can cheat, the extended version on four CDs.)
Beethoven piano sonatas (Rubinstein, Moonlight, Pathetique, Apassionata, Les Adieux on one CD)
Rossini opera Barber of Seville
Beethoven Symphony 4 and 7
Mozart opera Marriage of Figaro

I could live with no other music for.. say ten years and be OK.

Little Feat-Waiting for Columbus
Grateful Dead-Europe 72
The Band-The last waltz
Louis Armstrong-The great Chicago concert
Coltrane-A love supreme

If you ask me next week it'll probably be a different list.

Shostakovich Symphony 5 & 9 - Kreizberg, Russian National Orchestra, on Pentatone
Prokofiev Symphonies 1 & 5 - Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, on Telarc
Charlie Parker - Complete Savoy Studio Recordings
I AM - Earth Wind and Fire, on Columbia
Beethoven 9th Symphony - Vanska, Minnesota Orchestra, on BIS
:shh:  (... and Night at Birdland Vol. 1 - Art Blakey, on Blue Note )


On second thought, I think I'll skip the 3 hour cruise, and just stay right here... thanks anyway Rick!  :thumb:

What are your 5 albums, Rick?
