We can list them here. Lets try to include a cite for these.

I'll start with her most recent 10 Ten Favorites from the new issue of Musik Express (Jan 2013).
http://www.musikexpress.de/news/me-ticker/article356062/die-all-time-faves-von-cat-power.html

1. Bob Dylan - Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
2. Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
3. Rolling Stones - England's Newest Hitmakers
4. Creedence Clearwater Revival - Green River
5. Otis Redding - The Immortal Otis Redding
6. Liz Phair - Exile In Guyville
7. Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
8. Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
9. Iggy Pop - The Idiot
10. David Bowie - The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars


------------------------

From her recent Spotify Interview she lists the following 5 Favorites.

1. Otis Redding - Bootleg, including "These Arms Of Mine". ("It's not in Paris.")
2. Billie Holiday - Unknown Album including "Strange Fruit".
3. Husker Du - Metal Circus EP
4. Bob Dylan - Bootleg Series Vol 1-3 (Rare And Unreleased) including "Moonshiner".
5. Jay-Z - The Black Album

------------------------

From her January 2008 Interview with Oprah Magazine she lists the following as favorites.

Boubacar Traoré - Kar Kar - "He's from Mali, and he's in his 60s. He sings in his tribal language and a French crossover language. A lot of the songs are about women, community, families, God, and survival. It's like the blues—very repetitive and very gospel-y in its cadence."

Miles Davis - Ascenseur Pour L'éChafaud - "This is the soundtrack to the Louis Malle film Elevator to the Gallows. I hear a bit of Coltrane and other people's riffs, too. It has a lot of emotional ups and downs, it's elegant, and it's lyrical."

Bob Dylan - Live at the Gaslight - "This was only recently released. It's mellow; I'm really into the mellow thing. He does 'Barbara Allen' and a version of 'Moonshiner' that's so different from the one I'd first heard. It's a peaceful record."

The Rolling Stones - England's Newest Hitmakers - "This was their first, with songs like 'Walking the Dog' and 'I'm a King Bee.' You hear in their sound how much they admire people like Chuck Berry. I've always loved this record; it was my stepdad's, and it stuck."

--------------------------

Mary J. Blige - The Breakthrough - From her 2012 Pitchfork interview: "The R&B great's 2005 "The Breakthrough" is important to her, desert-island important..."
