The Whole Album Meme

On your portable MP3 or other music player, what artists are represented by complete albums / discs, rather than individual songs?

The Doors: The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting for the Sun, L. A. Woman

Patti Smith: Horses, Easter

Alex Harvey: N.E.X.T., Rock Drill

The Drive By Truckers: Decoration Day, Dirty South

Fields of the Nephilim: Earth Inferno

Hawkwind: Space Ritual

The Tubes: Young and Rich

Bob Dylan: Highway 61 Revisited

Swans: White Light from the Mouth of Infinity

Sisters of Mercy: First and Last and Always

Nick Cave: Murder Ballads

Tom Verlaine: Dreamtime

David Johansen: David Johansen

Arthur Brown: The Crazy World of Arthur Brown

The Stooges: Raw Power

The list doesn't quite give an accurate account of what's on mine, although it's fairly representative. There's a lot of Rolling Stones on my IPod, but no whole albums as far as I know, though I suspect Let It Bleed and Beggar's Banquet come close. Patti Smith would have all of Radio Ethiopia, except for the title track. I left out "L. A. Blues" from Fun House by The Stooges. Neil Young isn't there, though he is well represented. Can't think of any full albums I have by him, but I know the whole Crazy Horse "side" of Rust Never Sleeps is on there.


my ipod is one of the smallest at 60gb. there is no way i could even begin to list the artists with whole albums on there, which leads me to a question...

is this meme from the past?
Not sure how old it is - my IPod is fairly old, at least 3 years old now.

What I use it for mostly is attached to my clock radio with all the songs set to shuffle. I can't guarantee that I'll be in the mood for what it plays, but at least I won't hate it that much. This probably affects what I put on it as well. And I can cue up "Failure" for Monday morning.
We just got a 60G Nomad, gave the 30G to sethrenn...

We have a large number of whole albums on there -- Robert Mirabal, Robbie Robertson, Bill Miller, Robert Tree Cody, several compilation discs of traditional songs, some Lifescapes/ Solitudes "lite 107" stuff, CSN, CSNY, Donovan, Melanie, Joni, Judy, Mary and John, most of it recorded pre-1977. I think the most recent of all of those is Hejira. We also have Listening to Richard Brautigan on there and I think all of Lennon's Plastic Ono Band. Also Fleetwood Mac's Rumours.

Neil has got his first album, Broken Arrow, Rust Never Sleeps, Comes A Time, Living with War, and Ragged Glory. Patti has Trampin'.
