I think I would just buy a lifetime subscription to Satellite Radio for my solar-powered satellite radio receiver...

Interesting that the person who STARTED this topic still has not posted his list....! But looking back I see you have mentioned: Yes Genesis 10CC Pink Floyd Jethro Tull Moody Blues Are we already more than halfway there, Max? I'd love to see you deciding what to grab in a FIRE!

I've been using my library network to find some of the selections listed above, and now they are starting to roll in... (by the way, if you haven't explored the modern library system, you owe it to yourself to check it out [pun intended]. Now matter how disappointing your own local library may be, get yourself a library card, find out which network of libraries yours belongs to, use your library number to get access to that system [which takes about 30 seconds] and then search the combined catalog to find whatever you want. Your selections will be delivered to your local library, and they'll likely CALL you when your next batch is ready to pick up! One of THE MOST satisfying uses of my tax dollars ever devised!!!) So anyway, I had never even HEARD of Paul Simon's Graceland (I quit listening to him when he started composing lyrics like "Get on the Bus, Gus; Make a New Plan, Stan") and I was pleasantly surprised, a refreshing change for my drive to work today. I haven't heard any Hot Tuna since I was a teenager, what a blast from the past... and seeing John Denver appearing on the same list as Uriah Heep was fun. Thanks to all for the suggestions! Time to put the headphones on and do some circuit board layout...

Led Zeppelin - Mothership Boston - Boston John Denver - Poems, Prayers, and Promises The Who - Who's Next Eagles- Hotel California Steve Miller Band - Fly Like an Eagle Bob Seger - Night Moves Steely Dan - Can't Buy A Thrill Bachman-Turner Overdrive - Not Fragile Uriah Heep - Demons and Wizards

I was about to cheat and say I would go through my iTunes library (ok, whole albums only) and burn MP3s onto those 10 CDs, since any decent CD player these days will decode MP3s off the disc. Solar power is important too... In any case, I just want to say that for a bunch of technology nerds, you guys all have great taste in music!
