For me its the first or very early LP's of:
Allman Brothers - "Allman Joys" "Idyllwild South"
Santana - "Santana" 200 g reissue
Emerson Lake and Palmer - "Emerson Lake and Palmer"
and,
Beethoven - "Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major" Rudolph Serkin/Ozawa/BSO

Just got my copy of the LP of JT’s America Standard.  Didn’t get the 45 rpm  version because I didn’t want to keep changing sides.
As it is, it’s much better than the CD: instruments much clearer, veil lifted.
One complaint.The record arrived dirty and noisy with a hair on one side.
After washing, it sounds pristine.
On an A B listening comparison of the LP and CD, I have to report a great disappointment.  My sonic memory was dead wrong.
Unfortunately, the CD is more transparent than the LP, which sounds a little thick.
I’m listening with a a four figure cartridge and a pretty decent turntable, so I don’t think that’s the problem.
Oh well.......
