Chico Freeman on India Navigation (Kings of Mali; Spirit Sensitive; The Outside Within); plus some other "free jazz" titles on the same label. And. . . (an admittedly guilty pleasure) my vintage copy of Midnight in Moscow by Kenny Ball and His Jazzmen.
Only four?? First to mind of recent, Pink Floyd 'Wish you were Here', Bruce Cockburn 'World of Wonders', Yes 'Tales of Tpographic Oceans' and Grateful Dead 'Terrapin Station' and the 9 O'clock news.

I play vinyl every day, but the above are constantly played.
The Classic reissues of the Zep catalog are never far from the TT.
At any given time I have a few LP's on hand in listening area that I consider to be both aesthetically pleasing and also sonically really nice. These are my "go to" spins and in between I check out stuff I have managed to find in the bins. Right now:
Bill Evans - You Must Believe In Spring ($5)
Art Farmer and Jim Hall - Big Blues ($5)
Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms ($3)
Steely Dan - Gaucho ($3)
Phoebe Snow - First Album ($1)
I do have perhaps new 10-15 180G LP's stuff - some of which I am waiting to unpackage at the right time - but the point of collecting for me is "the cheap thrill" - finding a $5 or less used but near mint LP that actually sounds awesome too. As far as new stuff, I have not spent more than $25 on a new LP so have resisted the 45 RPM stuff. For example, the new Janis box is tempting but I do have good condition Cheap Thrills and Kozmic Blues and as much as I would like to hear the 180G I hesitate to drop 100 bucks on the box.
I am curious about the Shelby Lynne Just A Little' Lovin. The CD is stunning so I wonder if the vinyl can actually be any better. Nice thread!
Ziggy is on my perm rotation as well. I have the MFSL version and a UK version. I prefer the MoFi. I will look for an original pressing.
Keithjarret...The new 45RPM Quality Record Pressing of the Shleby Lynne's "Just A Little Lovin'" is spectacular. One of the best pressings I have heard. SIMPLY STUNNING!
Steve Tibbetts' 2nd LP ('yr') has been stalwart over the last 30-some years as his 4th LP 'Safe Journey'.
ELP's 1st LP, self titled (pink Island edition). I seem to never tire of it; same for King Crimson's 2nd LP 'In the Wake of Poseidon', which always amazes me at how much is done with so little in the way of instrumentation (of course I am a big fan of the Mellotron and play one in my own band).
I frequently play these LPs at shows as they are demonstration quality. That is how I met Albertporter.
I'm with Ebm. On our speakers, Muddy's "Folk Singer" on 45 RPM sounds stunningly good. I also have Starker playing Bach's 6 Cello Suites on Mercury next to my turntable for frequent late night sessions.
Wilco - All of their LPs, Tom Waits early stuff, Radiohead OK Computer, Elvis Costello Imperial Bedroom, Early Dead, Keith Richards solo stuff, Stones Exile on Main St.
Steely Dan - Gaucho
Sometimes I can't get past side one.
For me, Carmen McRae's 'ALFIE' in mono. When I moved to Paris, I then found out that it's a cult record there. Fortunately I didn't have to pay 35 euro's for my copy.
Another fan of Carmen McRae only for "I AM Music"
also would add Ralph Vaughn Williams The Lark Ascending with Iona Brown
Miles Davis Someday My Prince Will Come
