Desert Island Disks – My version

Not really following the format of Desert Island Disks, more inheritance tracks, I wanted to share with you some music that has been either poignant to me, put me in another place or that I have simply really liked.. It is by no means a compilation of my favourites, as that would indeed be a very difficult job, and the list would be much longer for a start (I think Desert Island Disks allow you 8 disks so hey I’ve swapped the other items for more records. My blog my rules!) Some tracks are from albums which have several on them that I like so I have chosen the perhaps less obvious ones, some artists in turn have other albums too that don’t feature at all but are no less cherished..

Perhaps a cue for another list in due course!

I have linked the images to current youtube videos so you can enjoy too..
