From turntable to turnstile? We wish...
We flock to concerts for their sense of limitless possibility -- a virtue that feels particularly muted when artists decide to perform their classic albums song for song. But what about the impossibilities? Here are 10 LPs we'd love to see re-created by the original players but never will be because of unflagging eccentricity, fidelity to notions of artistic integrity, lingering animus between collaborators, public disownment of the material and/or death.
-- Chris Richards
The Beatles -- "The White Album"
Prince -- "The Black Album"
