The Beatles - Hey Jude
.38 Special Special Forces, Japan pressing. 
@slaw I loved Hole. Not so much for their music but for the live performances. You never knew what you were going to get out of Courtney. I saw them three different times and every show was completely different.
Judas Priest - Rocka Rolla. It's on a purple splatter vinyl, and unlike how some colored vinyl can sound, the sound quality is excellent.
I wondered when the safe harbor of this  unique thread might end.

Do you mean the whiner who cries about being bullied and then pops into a thread for no other reason than to bully someone?  Some people can dish it out, but they can't take it.

Joe Walsh - But Seriously Folks...

This was a Japan pressing that I picked up recently.  When I put on side 1 and heard almost no noise and great sound quality I was really excited, but a little disappointed when I got to side 2 (the side with Life's Been Good) and there was noticeably more noise, although still a high VG+, close to NM-.  Apparently that side has been played a lot more than side one.  Still a great listen.
Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy, Japan pressing 
Cannonball Adderley - Somethin' Else
The Cars - Heartbeat City
The Doobie Brothers - What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits
Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True,  WLP 
Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Nightingales and Bombers, promo copy
Another copy of Sgt. Pepper.  The first one was the Giles Martin 1/2 speed remastered 50th anniversary edition.  This one is "Taken from 2009 EMI digital remaster".  They sound less different than I thought they might, but I definitely have a preference for the Giles version.
Steve Miller Band - Fly Like An Eagle, MFSL. Everything is sounding wonderful tonight after some minor cartridge adjustments. 
Alice Cooper - Live at the Apollo Theater Glasgow, RSD 2020
Grateful Dead- Terrapin Station, minty WLP. Wow!
Utopia - Deface the Music
Billy Joel - The Stranger
Listening to the second disk of the Chris Cornell compilation. I didn't know he did a cover of Billie Jean.
A nice copy of Pink Floyd - Obscured by Clouds. Thanks Jim! 
Maybe my 2nd favorite Rush album, Hemispheres 
Jim, I'm not sure how significant it was, but I picked up a pair of Herron M1 monoblocks.
@reubent  Can't go wrong with either of those choices!
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours, 45 RPM 
10CC - Greatest Hits 1972-1978. Promo copy. This might be my favorite compilation.
The Beatles - Love Songs
Christine McVie - S/T, Japan WLP
Mott the Hoople - Golden Age of Rock 'N' Roll, RSD 2020
Looks like my Stones' Goats Head Soup and T.P. Wildflowers and All The Rest are both on their way (finally)!
Thin Lizzy - Johnny The Fox
@slaw Got me jonesing for some Cars - Heartbeat City.
Fly Like an Eagle is the one I have the most copies of, but I think I have about five or six of heartbeat City including a MFSL.
@slaw Good memory!  I did play Johnny the Fox recently and realized it wasn't a very good copy, so I ordered a new pressing.  It was a bit disappointing, a little on the noisy side, but it may have been static.  It was pretty charged up when I took it off the table.  
Van Halen - Fair Warning
St. Vincent - Masseduction
Atlanta Rhythm Section - Champagne Jam 
Boz Scaggs - Slow Dancer
Bobbie Gentry - Ode to Billie Joe
@slaw I may try one of your mats at some point, but for now I'm tweaking other things.  At some point I'll probably be interested in something different than the big rubber mat on my JVC QL-Y66F.
The Beatles - Yesterday and Today
Sammy Hagar - Street Machine
I've been play grading more Beatles records this morning.

With the Beatles
Magical Mystery Tour
The Beatles Second Album

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Norah Jones - Playdate. Still working my way through some of the RSD 2020 Black Friday purchases. This one sounds fantastic so far!
Mazzy Star - Seasons of Your Day
Jean-Luc Ponty - Imaginary Voyage 
Dire Straits - Communique, MFSL 45 RPM
