I saw Tony Levin perform a couple of times, first with Peter Gabriel and then with King Crimson. I think it was the Three of a Perfect Pair tour but not sure... all I remember is that I was off to the right of the stage so all I could see was Adrian Belew pogoing around on stage playing guitar... didn't know who he was but his behaviour didn't seem like what I expected from Robert Fripp. Right near the end (after Red IIRC) the guy who I had figured for a roadie sitting in the corner stood up briefly and I realized *that* was Fripp, not the guy bouncing around center stage wink

Levin was awesome in the Gabriel concert... played stick maybe on half or more of the songs, and the sound is just hypnotic.

EDIT -- hey, for anyone looking for things to do this summer :

Adrien Belew, Tony Levin and others touring and hosting a music camp

John, if it isn't the Ashkenazy Pictures, listen to the samples of others to see if by chance you hear something familiar. There's a fairly long list, of course, but some of the older ones are Horowitz, Janis and Graffman.

On the Schubert 8th, I'd suggest Carlos Kleiber .

Bob, I'd have to take to the Island nine of the list I gave to Buddy last week here , The Planets, Daphnis et Chloe, Rachmaninoff symphonies, Hungarian Dances, Cinderella, Dvorak Cello Concerto, Ma Vlast, Respighi and Latin American collection. Since I didn't include any vocal items there I'd have to add the most beautiful vocal recording I've ever heard, the Anna Moffo collection with Stokowski here or here .

Thanks for adding, John. Gee, in the 50's, that list could have brought you before a Senate sub-committee hearing. Come to think of it, American music hasn't fared very well thus far for anyone who posted. Wazzup wid dat? No Dylan?

My list is always changing, too, but here's what I'm feeling right now, in no particular order:

  • Regina Spektor - Soviet Kitsch
  • Emily Wells - The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties
  • Marina and the Diamonds - The Family Jewels
  • Rasputina - Oh Perilous World
  • Cake - Fashion Nugget
  • Weezer - Weezer (the blue album)
  • CSS - La liberación
  • Fannypack - So Stylistic
  • Cœur de Pirate - Blonde
  • Sinéad O'Connor - I do not want I haven't got


Super impossible to choose. I don't think Regina's made her best album yet, but I needed her represented, so I went with the first album of hers I got. I think the Emily Wells album would go in my list no matter what. I could take any Cake album, really, but again, I went with the first one I heard. Oh, and if it's not cheating, I'll take the deluxe editions of the albums that have them, so I can get the greatest number of tracks possible.

There are a ton of other artists and albums fighting for these spots, but I think I'd fare well with these.

OK, let's see if I can play.

  • Midnight Oil - Diesel and Dust
  • The KLF - White Room
  • Rise Robots Rise - Spawn
  • Portishead - Roseland NYC Live
  • The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin
  • Björk - Vespertine
  • Beck - Sea Change
  • Blur - Think Tank
  • The Postal Service - Give Up
  • Deadmau5 - For Lack of a Better Name

I think I could live with those.

Charles, I'm shocked! There are musicians with penises on your list! I was really expecting all female vocalists. I guess you don't fall into any of the psychotic parameters set up for this thread by JP. Whew! That coulda been a close one.

If I had to just choose 10 discs, I probably wouldn't choose any. I get tired of anything over and over again.
