My All-Time Favourite Albums

This isn't much of a page. It merely contains a list of the albums that I return to again and again, depending on mood. The 'Old Favourites' are the ones that I tend to know by heart and already have become friends and companions of long standing. The 'New Favourites' are those that I've generally discovered more recently but may well just join the others one day.
