The Music Club Desert Island Discs
v2.0
Apple iTunes

 

Well over 2 years ago we asked the question:
"You are to be cast away on an island with only a mondo sound system and your choice of 10 recordings for entertainment...
What would you take?"

So we thought it was time for our members to recompile their lists and see what had changed.
Click here for Desert Island Discs 1.0

Don't forget the rules:
No Boxed Sets (though double albums or a disc from a set was ok)
Promos or imports were fine
The selections do not need to be in any particular order (thankfully!)

You can follow the links (where available) to Amazon.com to purchase the recording listed.
