Lory's Top Twenty "Essential" CD's

Yes, it's my proverbial "Desert Island List"; 20 essential works on CD that would enable me to remember all that's true, noble, creative, enlightening, uplifting, funny, sad, endearing and enduring about the human spirit, should I ever find myself shipwrecked on a desert island with nothing but a stereo system and my imagination.




JS Bach: Well Tempered Klavier John Coltrane: My Favorite Things Genesis: Selling England By The Pound
JS Bach:  Recital By Youri Boukoff Ella Fitzgerald: Pure Ella Grateful Dead: American Beauty
Beethoven:  Choral Fantasy Abdullah Ibrahim: Voice Of Africa  Jethro Tull: Aqualung
Dvorak:  New World Symphony Diana Krall: When I Look In Your Eyes Leo Kottke:  6 & 12 String Guitar
Mozart: Symphony Number 40 In G,  K 550 Oscar Peterson: We Get Requests Bob Marley: Legend
Schubert: Piano Sonata D 960 Frank Sinatra: Songs For Swinging Lovers Rolling Stones: Let It Bleed
Tschaikovsky:  Serenade For Strings Cal Tjader: Soul Sauce The Who: Who's Next

I know you're familiar with the phrase "A Baker's Dozen" and will permit me an additional, 21st CD, as is necessary for the symmetry of the table above and is especially appropriate as we have now entered the 21st Century.
