Floydy's All-Time Top 1000 Favourite Albums
No, not just a list...an in depth analysis and hopefully, conversation, about each of my favourite records.
I have a collection of 8631 albums. Some are still on vinyl, most on CD and others have been 'collected' via MP3 or streamed for me. But whatever the format, they are my passion, my source of aural pleasure over the past 40 years.
Over the last three weeks or so I have gone right through my collection, which is now housed on a portable 2TB external hard rive device, to collate and eventually place in order of my favourite one thousand albums in order of preference. Therefore, having so many recordings, even the album I am going to begin with in my next post is a good album in my opinion.
And there is where we head next: Opinions.
Please be aware that the albums in this list are only of my own personal opinion
and are not me saying to you that they are the best albums. We all have our own personal tastes in music and I am merely offering some of mine.
I'll be putting on a couple of albums at a time, perhaps a few times a day, to discuss amongst ourselves. Some albums are very famous, others you will never have heard of. They span from 1956 right up to recent releases and many artists will appear more than once.
When a particular post begins to fade out or progresses into member digression, I'll add the next one. Please respect that it is my thread and if you could refrain from posting your own favourites, that would be appreciated as the whole thing will descend into a right random mess. But by all means, please post any videos which are connected to the album in question - I would encourage that as it's a good discussion point.
To refresh then, I'll be starting to post my music in reverse order: No.1000 first, all the way down to my all-time favourite album. I'll add my own details with the album's sleeve and a video with info on the release and/or artist concerned. Plus, in intervals of maybe each 50 albums, I'll post a running list where we are at so far. Enjoy!
No.1000 coming up soon
