I saw this topic on the rock forum (which I rarely visit) and I posted my own contribution on that thread although my tastes are very different from the vast majority of the other posters there. So as nobody has started the topic here, I'll do so because I think we'll get very different selections.
Here's the rules - This challenge is to tell the most about your musical tastes in 5 albums. Not necessarily your 5 all-time favorite albums, but 5 that, collectively, tell the most about what you like.
As some people obviously didn't understand the original poster (S Rice), let's emphasize that we're looking for diversity.
So here's my selection, exactly as I posted on the rock forum
Linda Feller - Stille Stunden Am Kamin - country music, German music, Christmas music
Boswell Sisters - Collection volume 1 - jazz music, vintage pop music, American music (actually I have all five volumes, but I haven't got an overall greatest hits so hence volume 1)
Dalida - Les Annees Barclay L'integrale (10CD boxed set) - fifties pop music, sixties pop music, French music
Peter Paul and Mary - Peter Paul and Mommy - folk music, children's music
Elton John - Very best of - rock music, seventies pop music, eighties pop music, British music
........... and I couldn't include any classical or soul music in there without omitting something else. Insofar as I like more modern pop and rock, it tends to be the retro-sounding stuff so that omission doesn't matter.
