I quit the analog uber alles dogma a couple of years ago, but would expect that any cd releases of the above will not sound as good as a quality vinyl pressing, (Unfortunately no such thing was ever in the racks for some of these).
Nice taste, Albert. I never really think about this, owning as I do (like you) a large majority of vinyl over CD's, but just glancing at your list, I think that The Yardbirds "OUSD" is now out on CD (with extras, I believe), though it may be an import. Pretty sure I saw it in a store, along with a vinyl version of same in a gatefold jacket. Overall though, if there's one main reason why I've bothered with investing in CD's and digital gear, it's been all the reissued or repackaged or previously unreleased archival material made available on the format which I never would be able to find or afford the original vinyl of. On balance, the forced format switchover has in the long run turned out to be a boon for music lovers and vinyl scroungers alike.
I agree with JB I am sure I have many that never came out on disc but "Roll Over" by The New York Rock Ensemble is a very good album indeed and I have looked for on disc for years. It has a few gems including "Fields Of Joy" and everybody's favorite necrophilia song "Gravedigger" which I am listening to as I write. Cheers
Most of the Hampton Hawes catalog especially "Playin' In The Yard", beautiful electric piano on that one and I love that sound. Terry Reid's stuff like "The River" and "Seed Of Memory"which I don't think made it to disc.Marc Benno's LP "Ambush" I don't believe ever came out on disc either."Get Off In Chicago" an excellent obscure Harvey Mandel LP was never issued on disc as well.My LP of that one is still mint and the music does not sound at all dated to me. I could go on and on but............
