    Default You're Stranded on a Deserted Island, and...

    You have a great hifi system with you.

    You get to have one album. What is it?

    Me?

    Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here (no pun intended with the title)

    Interested to hear what folks say.

    The old stranded on the desert island question with a good system, Tommy Bolin-Teaser . I have listened to that thousands of times and could listen to it a thousand times more.

    Subject to change daily, but...

    I'm listening to a lot of electronic/ambient-type stuff these days, so:

    Kyle Bobby Dunn/Bring Me The Head Of Kyle Bobby Dunn

    or

    David Sylvian and Stephan Mathieu/Wandermude

    A couple of weeks ago it would have been Guided By Voices/Isolation Drills.

    Next week, who knows? Waiting on a bunch of remastered Police, placed my order yesterday...

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Deserted islands have no electricity. What's the point of having a great hi-fi system?

    Huh ? Really ?

    Don't make me biff you upside the head, your in Chicago too.

    One album, couldn't pick one. You'd get sick and tired of hearing the same stuff and sooner or later your using said album as a dinner plate.

    You're on a deserted island. You gotta improvise. A Wilson Love Doll, broken beer bottle and two sticks.

    I think you are thinking of Amanda Lear, the girl in black with the panther on a leash on the front of the second album "For Your Pleasure", who is supposed to be a dude.
