This is tough, but who can resist a list?
70s: Diamond Dogs - Bowie

This could all change by tomorrow.
I hope not. This would, pretty much, be my listing also.

00's Coldplay, Viva La Vida. Melody Gardot, My one and only thrill. Cara Dillon, self titled.
10's Laura Veirs, July Flame, Angus&Julia Stone, Down the way, Lauren Mann and the fairly odd folk, Over land and sea.
You suffer from the same disease that I do...
70's Harry Chapin Varities and balderdash. Stephen Bishop, Careless. Art Garfunkel, Watermark.

70s, too many to choose from: Led Zepp, Pink Floyd, Doors, Steely Dan, THe Who, Little Feat, Santana, Bob Marley, Dylan etc. I will pick:
Graham Parker - Squeezing Out Sparks.
80s a drought for me, Bruce's The River is worth a mention but I will go for:
The Go-Betweens - 16 Lovers Lane.
90s a bit better:
Can't really choose between these 2:
Altan - Harvest Storm and Beth Orton - Central Reservation
00s Not many I like; Top 3 are:
Ray Lamontagne: Trouble
Calexico - Carried to Dust
Shelby Lynne - Just A Little Lovin'

70s - Genesis. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.So difficult to choose from this decade, comprises most of my collection.
80s - DiMeola/McLaughlin/de Lucia. Friday Night In San Francisco
90s - Tori Amos - which one? very hard,. Boys for Pele this week.
00s - Return To Forever. Returns.
10s- Return To Forever. The Mothership Returns. Easy, so little to choose from.
No Waits, Hammill, VDGG,Yes. Joni, Camel, Tull or Paul Simon - so tricky just choosing one.
I can't do it either, so I'm not going to attempt to!
David @Frank Harvey Hi-Fi, Coventry
.......Or you could do it my way & just mention the artist that way the album is left to the imagination.
There is always the feeling that someone is left behind unfairly...
