20 Albums on an Island: July 2010 Edition

This is an activity that I've done a few times over the years, and it's always interesting to see what does and doesn't change over time. The basic idea behind this is that you're stuck on an island. This island has the ability to power a record player/ CD player (suspend reality), but you only have access to 20 albums. These albums must have been commercially released (no home made greatest hits) in some form. Greatest hits are acceptable, as long as they were commercially available at some point in time (even though it's a cop-out to go to them).
