The Music Club Desert Island Discs

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?

The Music Club members were asked that question and here are the results.

There were a few 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 to purchase the recording listed.
