Aretha Franklin - Amazing Grace and Sam Cooke - Live At The Harlem Square Club, two of the most incredible love albums ever created.

I also had a few of the Pearl Jam Official Bootlegs on cd back in the day, those were great live albums.

The first record I owned was Morrison Hotel, given to me in 1996 or 1997 by one of my high school teachers because I wore a Doors t-shirt to school at least once a week. I didn’t have a turntable back then so I displayed it on my bedroom wall. It was the CD era and I was very proud to have a vinyl record.

I still have that record. I don’t play it because it’s in rough shape, but it’s filed on the shelf with the rest of my collection.

Elton John - I grew up hearing his music and to this day, I listen to a wide variety of music, he is consistently one of my top favorite artists. His music is immersive for me, whether I’m feeling good or bad, it makes me feel better. He’s done so much good work for the lgbtq+ community and at this stage of his career he invests a lot of time supporting and mentoring younger artists.
