Desert Island, Island Records

There's forty here, mostly old stuff; but there's only so much vinyl that can be packed into a suitcase for some desert island. And there's no guarantee of a power source unless of course, Mary Ann (from Gilligan's Island) can pedal that bike and make electricity. Island Records started with Millie's "My Boy Lollypop," but then morphed into a wonderous British label that included Traffic, King Crimson, Fairport Convention, and (my beloved) Mott the Hoople. Of course, Chris Blackwell's label also gave us Bob Marley. Oh my: what a wondrous gift! Then there were these other records like Richard Thompson's Henry the Human Fly, John Martyn's Grace and Danger, and an album called Boy, by this rock 'n' roll band called U2. My oh my, all over again and again! Thank you, Island Records. Click an album below to read a review
