music collection
    #4119237 - 05/01/05 05:25 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I am working to build my little music library and I thought you here might help. I want it to be comprehensive but essential. I am interested in all kind of music from all times and all ethnic groups.

If you were asked to choose 12 musical creations from the beginning of time till now to be saved in a 21st century Noah's Ark, what would they be? And why?

Looking forward to your answers  :smile: :smile:

1) The smashing pumpkins - mellon collie and the infinite sadness. This is the pinicale of rock in the ninties.

2) The Beatles - White Album. Abbey road or sgt. peppers might win out if this was not a double album, but it is, more music wins, and the beatles are a necesity.

3) Bjork - Medulla. This woman has become the gold standard of what can be done with the human voice within the constaints of popular music. This album accentuates that more than any of her other work.

4) The Grateful Dead - Dicks picks volume 16. This three disk show includes some of the first ever performances of workingmans dead tunes, as well as on of their all time best jams, a two disc mind blowing non stop jam that starts with one of thier best performances of dark star.

5) Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde. I personally prefer Desire, but blonde on blonde is so diverse and does such a great job of showing who Dylan is as a songwriter, it's invaluable and a necessity for any serious music collection.

6) The Red Hot Chili Pepers - Blood Sugar Sex Magic. This album is fun, seriousley deep, funky, and catchy all at the same time. This is one of few albums I know of that you can find something new you love every time you listen too it. The styles and moods and enregy changes up so much as well, a life time of music on one disc.

7) DJ Shadow - Endtroducing. How do I explain this one, um.....Fuck it, I don't have to, simply a must have.

8) Ravi Shankar - Live at the concert for Bangladesh. Ravi and his sitar are simply the definition of musical enlightenment. I choose this performance for it's intensity, it's depth, and because it's simply my favorite of his work that I have heard.

9) Mum - Summer make good. Um, I just really like this album, thats it.

10) Django Rienhardt - Gypsy King. No explanation necesary.

11) Miles Davis - Bitches Brew. Need some jazz in the arc, and who knows jazz better than Miles Davis? This is my favorite of his works.

12) Shpongle - Tales of the inexpresible. There needs to be a spot for some good tripy psychedelic electronica. I'm hopeing thier new album is good enough to replace this one on my list.


A few honorable mentions without explanation-
Radiohead - I might be wrong - live recordings
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III
George Harrison - All things must pass
The Postal Service - Give up (yes, the postal service, they do it for me)
Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
Leo Kottke - Six and twelve string Guitatr
Gift of Gab - 4th Dimensional rocketships going up
Aesop Rock - Bazooka Tooth
John Fahey - Anthology
Skip Spence - Oar
Primus - The brown album
John Frusciante - Shadows collide with people
Sonic Youth - Daydream nation
Six organs of admitance - Dark Noontide
Tool - Lateralus
Candiria - Surialistic madness
Joni Mitchell - For the roses
Autechre - Tri repetea

jimi hendrix - are you experienced (and electric ladyland)
james brown - love, power, peace
muddy waters - The Anthology: 1947-1972
nirvana - nevermind
micheal jackson - thriller (and off the wall)
beach boys - pet sounds
johnny cash - at folsum prison
the misfits - walk among us
paul oakenfold - voyage into trance
pink floyd - dark side of the moon
george gershwin - rhapsody in blue
radiohead - kid a (and ok computer)
bill monroe - the essential bill monroe & his blue grass boys
robert johnson - complete recordings
nine inch nails - the fragile (and the downward spiral)
ella fitzgerald and louis armstrong - porgy and bess
pearl jam - ten
aretha franklin - aretha live at fillmore west
john coltrane - blue trane
hank williams sr. - the complete hank williams
woody guthrie - the greatest songs of woody guthrie
rodgers & hammerstein - the sound of music
bjork - homogenic (and post)
