My personality would guarantee that I would never want to listen to the 10 +1 albums I listed, instead craving for anything else.

I was only a casual fan the first time I made my list. And now I've heard pretty much everything available. Cry of Love is definitely one of my favorite albums of all time, Axis went on because it had too many good ones I'd have to add to the last album.

Same with Legend, even though I don't love every song on it, there are too many I do to not add it... At least for this moment. We'll see where I am in another year! a-hard-days-night-george-10

I think Electric Ladyland is my favourite Jimi album, as an album, it's got its own sound. I love too much of his stuff across all the albums anyway, so it'd be impossible to choose anything definitively.

I also really love Electric Ladyland, but it is hard to pick, which I guess is the whole exercise here.

It's interesting to see how tastes change.

The original criteria from post #1:

In this, you get to choose the 10 (studio) albums to be the only ones you can listen to for the rest of your life. But, here's a twist: you can take an eleventh album, with 14 songs that aren't on the 10 you already chose. 

Albums:

The Beatles - Revolver

Kansas - Leftoverture

Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Grateful Dead - American Beauty

The Allman Brothers Band - Eat A Peach

Elvis Costello - Armed Forces

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Déjà Vu

The Band - Music From Big Pink

The Clash - The Clash

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band

 

Bonus Tracks:

The Beatles - Rain

The Beatles - Hey Bulldog

David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust

Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 In G Major

Blue Oyster Cult - Before the Kiss (A Redcap)

U2  - The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)

Foghat  - Slow Ride

Charlie Rich - Mohair Sam

Buddy Holly - Rave On

Eric Clapton - Let It Grow

Head East - Never Been Any Reason

Jimi Hendrix - Red House

Led Zeppelin - Rock And Roll

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - Tears Of A Clown

 

I'd mourn the rest, but I could do a lot worse.
