5 Albums I Can’t Live Without:
Johnny’s Greatest Hits, Johnny Mathis
One of the most soulful voices ever.
West Side Story (Original Soundtrack Recording), Various Artists
Another classic that’s yet to be topped.
Stan Freberg Presents the United States of America Volume One: The Early Years, Stan Freberg
One of the original, classic comedians. Brilliant still.
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles
I remember the day it came out–we listened to it on the set of The Monkees TV show. We do the title track in my solo show now and the response is as amazing as ever.
At Large, The Kingston Trio
This was the group’s fourth album and remains a classic.
