Kate Bush - The dreaming.
Can - Tago mago.
ELP - Trilogy.
Focus - Hamburger concerto. I forgot to put it in. shame on me. Now, what album should I give up for puting this one in ?
Gentle giant - Aquiring the taste.
Jethro Tull - Thick as a brick or Songs from the wood.
Kansas - Leftoverture.
The moody blues - In search of the lost chord or Question of balance.
Matching mole - Little red record.
Pink floyd - Wish you were here or Animals.
Proto-kaw - Early recordings from Kansas.
Strawbs - From the witchwood.
Talk talk - Spirit of eden or Laughing stock.
Vangelis - Heaven and hell.

Well, that's the challenge actually.
To get the most variety within your selection.  Some people will choose 2 or 3 albums from the same artist/band, but in the long run you would appreciate the diversity. 
And what if you COULDN'T pick any live albums...!

And to add insult to the injury, I would give each "desert islander", in addition to their pack, one copy of Kayo Dot Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongues 


well said. and judging by some people's lists, they could use that eleventh album to take a break from the ten they chose that all basically sound the same.

The newest one definitely isn't my favorite; but, I do like how they threw caution to the wind. They broke away from their usual recipe and tried something different.

I do need to pick up that new live one sometime, though.

I made a mistake on mine. I put Transatlantic's Live In America, but I meant to put Live In Europe.

Did you JUST edit your entries? I was just going to give you a big 'thumbs up' emoticon for Dave Matthews Band's Before These Crowded Streets!!! I know, I know, it's only stuff that is prog and prog related; but, I hear a lot of progressive tendencies in their music. Especially "Don't Drink The Water", "Spoon", and "The Dreaming Tree". Man, I need to break that disc out more often. E     

 

DMB are awesome, especially that album. But their live stuff is even more proggy, the live version of "The Stone" reminds me so much of KC.


Yeah, very much so. When not constrained by the four walls of a studio, this band lets it fly even more. I just may have to venture on over and make a suggestion.   

I still need to get the newest one, but Live At Folsom Field is my favorite.
