Desert Isle Discs

Singer-guitarist Jim Tigue (Wish You Were Here, Tie Dye Harvest) shares his five faves.

1. Rolling Stones, Goats Head Soup

Truly the greatest rock and roll band of all time. Just listen to Mick Taylor's guitar!

2. Pink Floyd, Meddle

Something to chill to and provoke thought. So smooth. Gilmour is God, not Todd.

3. Neil Young, Harvest

Turn this on and watch the sun set and the moon rise.

4. Grateful Dead, Europe '72

Put on your dancing sandals and get down. Awesome.

5. The Samples, The Samples

Gotta have some world beat, reggae. Thank Belkin's Dan Kemer for bringing these guys to town.
