Here's my all-time "Desert Island" EM Discs...I couldn't limit myself to only 10 CDs to take on a deserted island, so I broke it up into 3 major categories.  Obviously a highly subjective and inexact science, my choices might be different next week, next month, or next year - although the classics are pretty well set.  So, for what it's worth:
