4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Barcelona
2.  Barcelona by Freddie Mercury
The list author says:

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (51 customer reviews)

OK Computer
3.  OK Computer by Radiohead

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (328 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Puccini: Madama Butterfly (highlights)
4.  Puccini: Madama Butterfly (highlights) by Giacomo Puccini

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Barbra Joan Streisand
5.  Barbra Joan Streisand by Barbra Streisand

Verdi - Requiem
6.  Verdi - Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

The Dance Collection
7.  The Dance Collection by Donna Summer

Puccini: Tosca (highlights)
8.  Puccini: Tosca (highlights) by Giacomo Puccini

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Merry Christmas
9.  Merry Christmas by Mariah Carey
The list author says:
  "You shouldn't have to wait till Christmas to slip on this, Mariah's best album. 'O holy night' is a knock-out.  This would go down well with some seasonal mulled wine."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews)

Puccini Arias
10.  Puccini Arias by Montserrat Caballe

£19.95   Used & New from: £7.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Romantic Callas
11.  Romantic Callas by Maria Callas

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Ray Of Light (U.S. Version)

Wagner: Siegfried Idyll, Tristan und isolde

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Everything Must Go

Respighi: Pines of Rome
15.  Respighi: Pines of Rome by Ottorino Respighi
The list author says:
  "Respighi's trilogy dedicated to the Eternal City is a joyful assault on the ears. When the nightingale sings you'll weep a bucketful. Consol yourself with a rum and coke."
£6.67   Used & New from: £2.93
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

True Love Waits - The Music of Radiohead
16.  True Love Waits - The Music of Radiohead by Christopher O'Riley

Dinah Sings/Somebody Loves Me
17.  Dinah Sings/Somebody Loves Me by Dinah Shore

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Original Hooked On Classics Collection

Sergei Rachmaninov: Piano Concertos 2 & 3
20.  Sergei Rachmaninov: Piano Concertos 2 & 3 by Tamás Vásáry
The list author says:
  "Rachmaninov's epic 3rd piano concerto needs a warhorse to execute - and Vasary pulls out every stop. You will require some warming Bailey's Irish Cream - on the rocks!"
£8.60   Used & New from: £0.79

Echoes
21.  Echoes by Will Young
The list author says:
  "Will Young's best album deserves your best attention. A limoncello slushie!"
