What albums would Keith Richards take to a deserted island?



You can’t ask for a better insight into an artist’s mind than looking at their influences. Keith Richards recently went on record with the BBC (via UCR) to list the eight albums he’d take with him to a deserted island. It’s a diverse mix from classical to reggae to blues to country and early rock. Here are the eight albums he named as well as a song from each:

Chuck Berry, Wee Wee Hours


Hank Williams, You Win Again

Aaron Neville, My True Story


Etta James, Sugar on the Floor


Freddie Scott, Are You Lonely for Me


Gregory Isaacs, Extra Classic


Nigel Kennedy and the English Chamber Orchestra, Spring From Vivaldi’s Four Seasons


Little Walter, Key to the Highway

The grand irony is that a lot of us would include a Stones album on our lists. That would probably be the last thing Richards would want to take with him. Would any of his picks be on your list?
