    Why only 3? Why not "your top 5"?

    Anyways, it's too hard to pick just 3.

    That's exactly what I was thinking... more songs from one album.

    The OP didn't specify.

    Right now they would be:
    "Solo Monk" - Thelonius Monk
    "Terrible" - Terry Adams (if whoever I loaned it to would bring it back...)
    "Message For The Mess Age" - NRBQ

    For me, Exile is a given; the other two could change from time to time, but at this moment they'd be:

    Hard to pick just 3... but here goes.

    Pink Floyd - Animals
    Radiohead - In Rainbows
    Kate Bush - The Dreaming

    If I was making a list of 5 I would add...

    Exile On Main Street

    ...and maybe something by Nina Hagen, for those days that I was "just in that mood".

    Exile should never be too far away from the top in those "best album" lists.

    Layla is good, but is it really that good? It seems to be very highly regarded in the States; more so than in the UK, I think. It's got some very good blues on it, and the title track is an evergreen masterpiece, but I've never felt it hangs together as an album the way I hoped it would. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think it would be much better as a single album.

    One thing I can say for sure about Layla, though: the guitar playing that impresses me most on it is by Duane, not Eric.
