What are your 'Desert Island Discs'?


What are your 'Desert Island Discs'?

Hey everyone!


So being a fairly new moderator on the community I thought it would be a good to get an idea of what music everyone enjoys. 


What better way than to pick your desert island discs?


So it's pretty simple, you are stranded on a desert island with a working CD player- which 5 albums do you have with you? (No greatest hits or compilations!!)


To keep with the 'Desert Island Discs' theme, choose 1 book and 1 luxury item too.

5 Albums
