    In the spirit of Desert Island Discs, where famous people explain what album they would bring to a desert island should they be stranded there, what albums would you bring if you were quarantined due to the current pandemic? (No compilations, best ofs, or live albums allowed.) Double albums ok, but no more than that (Sorry Sandinista fans!)

    Triggering off the Sandinista reference, here's one of mine

    This is my favorite album front to back and I have never tired of it even though I listen to it at least once a week.

    I can't think of a Django Reinhardt album that isn't a compilation; but that's what I would take.

    Others for me:

    Mr Tambourine Man
    Wish You Were Here
    Howlin' Wind or Squeezing Out Sparks
    Almost any Beatles release
    Any of the 70s Steely Dan LPs

    That's not a LP. Did you mean Bringing It All Back Home?
    I would have a hard time to decide between Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde.

    I immediately thought of Joy Division but far too gloomy. So a favourite since it release in 96.
