Must Have Music Albums

One of those great debates -- your are stuck on a desert island -- with only ten music albums / cds. What are your go-to / favorite records. If you had to choose, which ones would you have with you. I have my faves, and most have been my favorites since I was in my teen age years. ( researchers once figured our musical tastes are set by age 19 )
