I know that good music is more important than sound, but which records or CDs are your favorite, for both good music and a spine tingling, audiophile recording. Mine would include Patrica Barber "Split" (more natural than sonic fireworks but very very good) the old reference recording of Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat, and an original Dave Grusin Discovered Again on vinyl. (OK, a little bit cheesey pop jazzy, but still enjoyable.)
Hmmmmm....this is something that would change day to day for me. TODAY I would choose Bill Evans - Live at Montreux, Miles Davis - Kind of Blue, Pete Townshend/Ronnie Lane - Rough Mix, Richard Thompson - Mock Tudor, and Metallica - The Black Album.
