Must have Vinyl records

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm ordering my first turntable a Rega P3/24, finally, can't resist the urge anymore, and besides reordering some of my CD collections on Vinyl, I'm looking for a list of must have recordings...

So any pointers where to look? I mainly listen to Jazz, Classical, and Classical Rock.

I'm also wondering if a post somewhere in head-fi exists that list your most treasured record(s), if not maybe we should start one.

Pink Floyd- Wish You Were Here is easily my favourite piece of vinyl.

For me, the joy of vinyl is hunting for used discs. Instead of tracking down a bunch of new ones, take $100 and head out to garage sales, thrift stores, junk shops, and anywhere used stuff is sold. Buy anything that looks interesting. You'll come back with a big pile of discs and lots of new music to explore.

I can see getting stuff on vinyl that is simply not available on CD. Why you would consider replacing some of your favorite CDs with the obviously inferior format is beyond me.
Switching from vinyl to CD was the single biggest upgrade I have ever done.

If you ever come to Athens,you should go to "Monastiraki".You'll find many of those shops with plenty of used lp's there,and some rare too.

Beatles - The White Album

although the white vinyl version of The White Album isn't the highest SQ version, it definitely is the sleekest

I inherited a copy in the original shrink wrap, unopened. Thank whatever god is out there the robbers who broke into my apartment didn't find that.

Vincebus Eruptum By Blue Cheer
This is a must have. It's reissued a lot so kinda easy to find. The originals from the day were walked on by groups of crazy folks! The originals are expensive and I have not seen one good one. This is really distorted as the Group played loud. You can feel how loud they played on this. This is Heavyblues before metal and heavy in a strung-out scary cute way.

The 1st run British press is, and the current market values for it in the right condition reflect it.

Stock up on some classical: Deutsche Grammophon (DG) LPs tend to go for under $5 and sound fantastic; just make sure to steer clear of the "Digital Master" LPs from the '80s. I've bought about 220 DG LPs from various "Half Price Books & Music" stores over the last year.

Also, be sure to check out: musicangle.com - By Michael Fremer -- Music * Reviews * Audio * Sound * Vinyl... for some great new releases.

A friend just told me he found a shrink-wrapped 180gram copy of the Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers while cleaning out his closet. It has a working zipper.

Agreed. I picked up Siouxie and the Banshees' first singles compilation and now it's in my favourites pile.

Hong Kong... Gar-den!
