Top 11 All Time Favorite CDs

I own over 1000 CDs, and hundreds of CD mixes, cassettes and mixtapes. I’m even old enough to have a few dozen albums on vinyl, mostly bought as a kid when they were first released. It’s a collection that would make Jack Black (in School of Rock) and John Cusack (in High Fidelity) proud. Out of that collection I’ve put together my all-time favorite Top 11. All 11 of these discs still receive steady rotation on the six shooter (my CD player) and will continue for years and years to come. I’ll never get tired of these personal classics. As my friend Jima would say, they’re “wall to wall,” meaning every song is solid and the disc is great from beginning to end. As you can see, I think highly of the 1970’s. The 90’s were a golden age of sorts for music according to the timeline of my life. This list is subject to change of course, but then again maybe not.

1. Led Zeppelin – Physical Graffiti (1975)
2. Love Battery – Straight Freak Ticket (1995)
3. The Rolling Stones – Let It Bleed (1969)
4. Swervedriver – Mezcal Head (1993)
5. Queens Of The Stone Age – self titled (1998)
6. The Smashing Pumpkins – Gish (1991)
7. U2 – War (1983)
8. Morphine – Cure For Pain (1993)
9. Neil Young with Crazy Horse – Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969)
10. Chris Whitley – Living With The Law (1991)
11. Mark Lanegan Band – Bubblegum (2004)
