      I have to go back and relisten. Haven't heard it in a long time.

      Wasn't a totally inclusive list. Had to leave some room for others!

        Haha! I hear ya. If I had the number of reissues you have I might have omitted some as well. Glad you posted the ORG Aaron Neville, and I agree that its a must-have!

          I wonder if I am surprised that I own many of the LPs that Myles listed? I don't have the complete list, but I have most of them. Another LP that I'm stuck on is Neil Young-Live at the Cellar Door. If you claim to like Neil Young, great recordings, spinning LPs and you don't have this LP, something is amiss.

            It's the youngness of his voice that is sooo.... entrancing. Like the Freewheelin' Dylan. Babies.

                It's interesting you mention that as that is one of the primary reasons I found Chad's AP reissue of Cat Stevens- Tea For The Tillerman lacking in. Don't get me wrong, it's a gorgeous recording in every other respect, but my German Island and the UK pressings top it for that reason.

                  I thought the pink rim Island trounced the 33 rpm reissue. Much closer on the 45 rpm. Just more subtlety and air.

                    ​33 or 45 RPM version of Chad's reissue?

                      33.....I heard the 45 is better, but I'm more than pleased with what I have.

                        ​The 45 RPM version is exactly 2 gabillion times better than the 33 1/3 RPM version.

                          But does it beat the original UK Pink label? Unless it's better I'm not biting.

                              Love your list, Myles! Totally agree the Dean Martin and Shelby Lynn reissues are absolutely winners! I play both for visitors to show off what vinyl can do!

                              From MoFi, I would add Beck's Sea Change. I think one of their better remasters.

                              From ORG, I like Espana (Gladiator was a big let down).

                              From Classic Records, love The Royal Ballet! I would have added Faust/Carmen, too, but the AP reissue has its own charms and it's hard to pick a favorite!

                              From EMI Pro Use Series, DSOTM!
