MY SIX BEST ALBUMS - PAUL GROSS

Actor Paul, 47, shot to fame playing Mountie Benton Fraser in the hit cop show Due South (1994-99). He lives in Toronto with his wife and two children. Paul appears in Southbound, part of the Due South Day, on ITV3, December 30.

THE BEATLES: SERGEANT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND (Parlophone)
THIS saw the Beatles soar to even greater heights and reflects a band at the peak of their powers. Every song is a classic. The greatest album of all time.

JOHNNY CASH: AT FOLSOM PRISON (American Milestones)
WHAT can be said? He's the Man In Black. This is Folsom. These are the Folsom Prison Blues. Cash was quite simply one of the most influential country/rock 'n' roll stars ever. A legend.

NIRVANA: NEVERMIND (Geffen)
SINGER Kurt Cobain was an iconic figure and you only have to listen to songs like Smells Like Teen Spirit to sense the band's raw energy and spirit.

STEVE EARLE: EL CORAZON (Warners)
EARLE writes straight into the dark underbelly of country's roots. Tough songs with staggering melodies. A fantastic performer and a good man.

THE CLASH: COMBAT ROCK (Columbia)
THE perfect record for banging around, driving cars, hitting punch bags or reading the report from the Iraq Study Group. Has some of the greatest rock 'n' roll songs ever recorded.

JOHN PRINE: JOHN PRINE (Rhino)
AN American country/folk singer-songwriter once dubbed "the new Bob Dylan". One of the most memorable records ever made; simple yet evocative.
