Given the current quarantine situation, it seemed like the right time to ask the question “if you were marooned alone on a desert island, what music would you take with you?” … Of course, if we were marooned on a dessert island, the answers would be totally different.
Here’s what we got from our board members and writers. What would your choices be?
Doobie Brothers – What Were Once Vices are Now Habits
I don’t think it’s the same, but for me it’s “what if you were stuck in your man cave, but had enough cigars?”
For today it is as follows:
Vivaldi – Four Seasons – just for piece of mind
The Rutles – because I could use a laugh
Sonny and Cher – because this has become groundhog day
Gonna look online or youtube for some real old 78 speed country that I’ve never heard before
The Who at Kilburn 1977 DVD
Oh, and …
Simon & Garfunkel – Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band – Born to Run
Elliott Smith – Either/Or
The Postal Service – Give Up
The National – High Violet
Oh, yeah, I gotta have the Allman Bros. Live at the Fillmore, too!
Grateful Dead – Europe ‘72
Allman Brothers Band – Live from the Fillmore East
Little Feat-Waiting For Columbus
Yes – Songs
Genesis-Three Sides Live
Should still have room in my luggage for my collection live recordings on Mini Discs of Gov’t Mule and the Derek Trucks Band.
(This is dependent on still having an internet connection!)
Lots of online watch parties going on to support local music!
Davey O, Tyler Westcott, The Healing Committee were my weekend picks, but I plan on catching music from as many as I can and supporting through virtual tipping!
