I recently copied my entire collection to an external hard drive to use during the day at work and have been listening to bands in marathon fashion.  I've recently listened to Rush, Yes, Lana Lane, and Van Halen.  I don't know who I want to have a marathon for next.  My next marathon will start on Monday, so please let me know who I should listen to next.

Had to go for Pain of Salvation. Marillion and PT in a close second place.

Then name of the band I voted for is Talking Heads.  ZZ Top would be a good choice, too.

Recommending U2 here, assuming you have the majority of their albums because it would be interesting to hear them evolve, devolve, and evolve again as a band.  Really, though, it's whatever you will be in the mood for Monday morning.

Has to be Vanden Plas ... Something about their new one that instantly put it in my top 3 of all time, but I can't work out why, and no one else thinks it's a masterpiece... Odd.

Good list, lots to choose from.

I voted for Primus. Also, if you have Les' solo stuff and FFFB add it to the marathon. It's all good.

CCBBoBB?  I believe it's commonly abbreviated as C2B3, you got an extra B somewhere.

I mistakenly thought there was a "big."  Been a while since I pulled that one out

A Who marathon would be nice, I haven't listened to them in a long while. One of my first musical loves.
 
It's very interesting and entertaining to listen full discographies of many of 70s bands because you see how they evolved in so many ways and mature. You really don't see much of that in the 90s and 00s bands.

Primus. Caught them at a festival just the other day and they were as good as ever. Even prompted me to take my bass of it's stand for the first time in ages.
