Stephane Grappelli's -Feeling + Finesse = Jazz from 1962 on Atlantic 1391.
Played with the legendary Django Reinhardt in the Quintet of the Hot Club of France etc.
Pierre Cavalli on hollow body simply cooks through this Lp.
* a tip; buy it on the UK Atlantic 1391, not a domestic repress.
Easy one for me...
Nazareth - Hair of the dog (important - European original version that doesn't include Love Hurts)...bought it 1976 shortly after it came out and it has been my favorite ever since (and one of the three very first I bought for my own money - the first was Rampant by same group a couple of months earlier) - still listen to it regularly...also, IMHO, the heaviest record ever. Original UK press preferred sound wise, as explained here...
Thanks for a good thread - will keep an eye on this one and check out unknown to me (hope for some jazz and classical recommendations here)...if possible, please state which LP pressing for best sound ;-)
Schubert - for the Mahler you mention, do you happen to have a recommendation as to which pressing?
I have way too many classical favorites on LP to be able to single out just one. But I'll give it a shot anyway: Beethoven Sonatas Opus 53 ("Waldstein"), 78, and 90, Paul Badura-Skoda performing on an 1815 Hammerflügel, Astrée AS73.
Long since out of print on LP, unfortunately. I don't know if it is available on CD. As with most Astrée LPs the sound is incredible.
