Revolver , White Album , McCartney II , Living in the Material World and Shankar Family & Friends (produced by a George). If the last one doesn't count, I'd choose Walls And Bridges .

And to answer everyone's question:

Yes. I am attempting to kill you. Hypothetically, of course. 

  

Then why are you holding a silver hammer?

  

If you gave me a choice between this and Maxwell, I'd take my chances with that hammer.

No Past Masters allowed though...

Do all three Anthology albums count as one? What about Live At The BBC ?

Breakfast - usually just some sort of breakfast cereal with milk and fruit (bananas, strawberries, blueberries) , plus coffee. Occasionally I'll add or substitute buttered toast. (If dining out, I'll go for eggs/fried potatoes/pork products. Plus toast/fruit/coffee.)

Volume - Obviously devices have different optimum volumes. I like it just on the side of loud, maybe about 7 on headphones.

4 Beatles albums and one solo, for all eternity! - As of today, I think my needs are best served by WTB, AHDN , Rubber Soul , and the White Album , because it's got the most songs. And that's the same reason (more slices of vinyl) I'd choose ATMP as the solo LP...even as I'm tempted to choose something I've never heard, something else by George or Paul

This is easy considering The Beatles released their 5 best albums essentially back to back.

Rubber Soul , Revolver , Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The BEATLES, and Abbey Road .

Here's a harder challenge, if you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring 5 discs and each disc had to be from a different band, what would you bring?

For me, it would be Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band (mono), Queen's Greatest Hits (We Will Rock You version), The Dark Side Of The Moon, Songs About Jane, and Master Of Reality.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Getting awfully similar to https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....land-disc/

But I guess I'd take:

Revolver (Beatles), Waterloo (ABBA), The Very Best of the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), 20 Golden Greats (The Beach Boys ) and... Argh It's So Hard to choose. Because I don't want to spend too much time thinking about it I'll say Time Capsule: Songs for a Future Generation (The B-52's) but a-hard-days-night-paul-7Ask me tomorrow and I'll probably give you a different answer.

Off the top of my head... 

The Beatles - The White Album (quantity and quality) 

Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense (a really fun one to keep me dancing and enjoying myself on the desert island)

Björk - Vespertine (one that's so beautifully produced I can just get lost in the sound) 

Miles Davis - In A Silent Way (one for when I'm laying on the beach at night)

Kate Bush - Hounds of Love (probably for the same reasons anybody would pick Abbey Road
