As I play songs on The Deep Blues they are retired until the complete album is played and brought out of retirement. Usually taking several years, this allows me to keep the show from being too repetitive while challenging me to explore more music in my collection. Below are a list of retired albums…which is also a good indication of the best albums heard on the show.

In choosing the artists and songs I play on the Deep Blues Show, I aim to keep it fresh and unique.

It is my goal that throughout a single show that I do not play an artist more than once. Also, I try to not repeat an individual song...ever.That means that once I play a song, you won't hear it again unless I play a copy from another album or compilation.

As a result, since the first Deep Blues Show I have played every song from each of the following albums, essentially retiring them from my library.Obviously they're among my favorite artists and albums, so if you like what I've played on the air, you'll probably love these.
