There's this thing going around on that social media medium known as Faceache where you are supposed to list your top ten LP's, posting the sleeve pic of one each day.\n\nI couldn't be bothered with that but it did prompt me to think about what my favourite records would be. It's very difficult to nail it down to ten but in the end I did it from a shortlist of 32. It surprised me there's very little black music like Old Ska & Reggae, Bob Marley, Tamla Motown, Stax, Volt, Stevie Wonder and more musical genres which feature amongst my favourites as they are played often at home.\n\nStill, I was brutally honest and this is my final choice, in no particular order, for top ten albums (well, it is as at 22nd April 2018 ;) )\n\nUnhalfbricking – Fairport Convention\n\nStrictly Personal – Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band\n\nAstral Weeks – Van Morrison\n\nLed Zeppelin 1\n\nForever Changes – Love\n\nRevolver – The Beatles\n\nBlack Sabbath – The 1st LP\n\nLet It Bleed – The Rolling Stones\n\nThe Autumn Stone – The Small Faces\n\nDusty In Memphis – Dusty Springfield\n\n[I]And this was my initial list of 32, twas a hard job whittling this lot down to ten:[/I]\n\nWhat We Did On Our Holidays – Fairport Convention\n\nUnhalfbricking – Fairport Convention\n\nHot Rats – Frank Zappa\n\nStrictly Personal – Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band\n\nAstral Weeks – Van Morrison\n\nLed Zeppelin 1\n\nThen Play On – Fleetwood Mac\n\nObscured By Clouds – Pink Floyd\n\nArs Longa Vita Brevis – The Nice\n\nForever Changes – Love\n\nSantana – The Third LP\n\nMorrison Hotel – The Doors\n\nSeventh Sojourn – The Moody Blues\n\nOnce Again – Barclay James Harvest\n\nDusty In Memphis – Dusty Springfield\n\nStray – The First LP\n\nLoaded – Velvet Underground\n\nThis Was – Jethro Tull\n\nBlack Sabbath – The 1st LP\n\nLet It Bleed – The Rolling Stones\n\nGet Your Ya Ya’s Out – The Rolling Stones\n\nThe Autumn Stone – The Small Faces\n\nWho’s Next – The Who\n\nBlood Sugar Sex Magic – Red Hot Chili Peppers\n\nSilent Alarm – Bloc Party\n\nRevolver – The Beatles\n\nRubber Soul – The Beatles\n\nEven Serpents Shine – The Only Ones\n\nVs – Pearl Jam\n\nNever Never Land – Pink Fairies\n\nAre You Experienced – The Jimi Hendrix Experience\n\nZuma – Neil Young\n\nAnd while we're all about lists, Barbarian recently posted a link to an all time top 150 albums by females, as voted for by a cross section of the UK population. I browsed through and was surprised to note that I only owned 13 of them on vinyl LP's. I do have a lot more of that top 150 on FLAC files but still...\n\nHere's the 13 I own:\n\nThe Pretenders 1st LP (Chrissie Hynde)\nThe B-52's 1st LP (Kate Pierson & Cindy Wilson)\nJoni Mitchell - Blue\nJoni Mitchell - Hejira\nCarly Simon - No Secrets\nSiouxsie & The Banshees - The Scream\nDusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis\nHeart - Dreamboat Annie\nKate Bush - Hounds Of Love\nGrace Jones - Nightclubbing\nBlondie - Paralell Lines\nFleetwood Mac - Rumours (Stevie Nicks & Christine Perfect)\nJanis Joplin - Pearl\n\nIt did occur to me that bands that just happen to have female vocalists may not strictly be female artists but I suppose that would be getting a bit nit picky.\n\nIf you have any musical lists you'd like to share then please do.
