Hard to pick just one

I've actually asked myself this sort of question before, "If I could only keep the discs released in one particular year, which year would I choose?". Bloody hard question, especially when posed with the loss of the rest (strictly hypothetical!!!). Don't ask me why I put myself through this, I guess I was just testing my metal to see if I could narrow down a favourite year - perhaps it was just self torture, LOL.

The question I had to ask was this, what albums couldn't I do without, should something as horrendous as this happen. It made the decision more black and white, yet no easier.

I still couldn't come up with a single year, considering my must keeps were spread all over the place. 1987 I agree was a top year, but there are only one or two can't-live-withouts there, 1988 the same, 1991 and 1992 also pulled out some phenominal material, as did 1993 even with the onset of grunge, stuff that I couldn't honestly say I could live without. In the end, if I had to, I could knock it down to maybe a dozen discs, but they're running from 87-93.

So for me its an era to consider, not just a single year. My ultimate era would be 84-95, and even then I'm missing material that I've grown to love released after 95. Very difficult question to answer that one.

And so I pose you the question: If you could only keep the discs in your collection released from one year, which year would it be? Its a painful thought isn't it, but really puts the pressure on, you probably end up with the most honest answer in the end. Good luck!

Cheers and beers
